English-language Turkish news service, TRT World, has launched on UK subscription-free satellite TV platform, Freesat.
“We’re very pleased to be the first free-to-air platform to offer TRT World to UK viewers,” said Alistair Thom, managing director of Freesat.
“In coming to Freesat, TRT World joins the likes of CNN and Al-Jazeera in providing our viewers with an international perspective on news and current affairs from both home and abroad.”
Murat Akguc, managing director at TRT World said: “TRT World is strengthening its worldwide position as a global news organisation and this deal will enable us to reach out to UK homes to provide an alternative viewpoint on world events, challenging perceived narratives and providing a much-needed perspective on news.”
TRT World is the international face of Turkish Radio and Television Corporation. It had been broadcasting in the English language since 2015 to communicate a Turkish perspective on current affairs to a global audience.
