European news broadcaster Euronews is launching a Persian-language service.
This comes after it won a competitive call for tender from the European Union at the end of last year and the company signed a service agreement with the European Commission to extend the channels programming to include Persian.
The move will see it ramp up its coverage in Iran, Afghanistan and Bahrain. The channel, which is its tenth different language version, will launch on five satellite services; Â Eutelsat, Hot Bird 6, Arabsat Bad-4, Nilesat 101, Asiasat 5 and Eurobird 1. The company will also launch the service online this week, one week ahead of its channel launch.
