AJE gains carriage in Israel

Al Jazeera English has signed a carriage deal with Israeli satellite television provider Yes.

The Jerusalem Post reports that the channel will be added to the Yes lineup effective December 5, with cable operator Hot expected to add the channel "in the coming weeks".

With the Yes deal, AJE's international reach will top the 80m households mark; however, carriage on a major multichannel provider in the US has yet to be achieved by the network.
