BREAKING. Al Jazeera Sport launching 1 November will also start 'the most advanced live sport streaming service' on the internet.

 Just after Thursday's news that Al Jazeera (DStv 406 / TopTV 401) will start a sports channel, Al Jazeera Sports from tomorrow, 1 November, comes the news that Al Jazeera will also start Al Jazeera Sport.TV from November - an online sport streaming portal that will be streaming all of the content of Al Jazeera Sports on the web for 24 hours per day.

Al Jazeera Sport.TV launching tomorrow will be the ''most advanced live sport streaming service'' in the world, says Al Jazeera in a just-issued press statement.

Al Jazeera Sport plans to stream over 13 000 live sport events per year on Al Jazeera Sport.TV which will be available over the internet, cellphones as well as an iPad application on demand. It's a subscription service costing $10 per month, although subscribers signing up in November will get the month free as part of an incentive trial service.

"Al Jazeera Sport has built the most extensive set of sports channels in the world and we are pleased to take our service to another level with the launch of Al Jazeera Sport.TV,'' says Nasser Nasser Bin Ghanem al Khelaifi, the general manager of Al Jazeera Sport.
