Al Jazeera Adds Subscription Mobile Video Apps

Al Jazeera, still denied TV carriage in the U.S., is expanding its mobile distribution, adding new Windows and Symbian video apps to its recently launched iPhone app and mobile websites.

Like the iPhone client, built by Livestation, the new apps, made by Mobiclip, offer the broadcaster’s Arabic and English-language shows live and on-demand. But, unlike the £1.79/$2.99 iPhone version, the additions require a $1.99-a-month monthly subscription (or $5.99 for six months, or $9.99 per year).
