We are the team building Al Jazeera’s latest innovation. Today, we give you a taste of what is to come.
AJ+ is a current affairs experience for mobiles and social streams. At Al Jazeera, the journalism is always first. But the way we tell stories adapts to where you’re watching. Al Jazeera has always been at the forefront of fusing the latest technology with good old-fashioned journalism. AJ+ is the latest manifestation.
AJ+ will be engaging and shareable. We will be letting our hair down. But this doesn’t mean we will dumb down as others think you have to in order to succeed online. This is a false choice. We will continue Al Jazeera’s tradition of fearless, global and socially conscious journalism.
We will have fun, yes, but crucially, we will also give you the option of the context and background you want on the world’s big stories. We will be both bitesize and in-depth.
We’ve uploaded a few videos and would love your feedback before the official launch and app later this year.
