DMA Media, TheNewsMarket’s parent company, has launched a brand new Persian news channel. Iran International is aimed at the 80 million people who live in Iran and the 10 million Iranians who live overseas – mainly in America, Canada, the UK, France and Germany. It’s a 24/7 news channel broadcast by satellite and streamed live at www.iranintl.com/live.
DMA is the channel’s broadcast partner and the team got the channel launched after just six weeks of rehearsals in a temporary studio in central London. The whole channel is in the Farsi language. The services provided by DMA included recruitment, on-air training and editorial support. The launch was at 3.30pm UK time on Thursday 18th May – featuring live news and factual shows plus special coverage of the Iranian elections.
Now that it’s launched, we’ll be supporting the move to permanent state of the art studios in West London – and recruiting and managing 180 Farsi-speaking staff over the next six months!
Iran International is the latest TV news channel launched by DMA – Europe’s largest independent news services company.
