The Best of 2019 on Link TV
Link TV is looking back at major milestones in 2019 as we kick into our 20th year of serving up global content. Join us in reflecting on the new programs and features we launched to engage, educate and activate viewers to become involved in the world.
In an effort to reach our audiences across the U.S. who are not currently subscribed to Dish Network channel 9410 or DIRECTV channel 375, we launched a free primetime livestream our website linktv.org. Our top content — which includes our news block from around the world and our foreign cinema — is now available from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. PT.
Beginning in 2002, the Peabody Award-winning daily program "Mosaic: News From the Middle East" often included reports from Al Jazeera’s Arabic-language service. In early 2011 during the Egyptian revolution, Link TV carried many hours of Al Jazeera English’s live reporting from Cairo’s Tahrir Square.
In February this year, we began presenting Al Jazeera's live, breaking and in-depth news from Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas five days a week as the only carrier of this content in the U.S. The Al Jazeera English news coverage expanded on Link TV's diverse spectrum of news perspectives from around the world.
Watch Monday-Thursday at 5:30 p.m. PT/8:30 p.m. ET and Friday at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET
Our foreign film strand "Cinemondo" continued in 2019 with 2 new seasons of the best in international cinema. With fan favorites including "Farewell My Queen," a film on Marie Antoinette's last few days at Versailles, and "Amen," a Costa-Gavras film about an SS officer trying to get the Pope's attention to stop extermination camps, the first season of the year offered great independent films.
The new season that kicked off December 2019, is comprised of 15 new titles from the library of Kino Lorber, including films from Palestine, Australia, France, South Korea and more. The first film of the season was based on the true story of a Palestinian singer who defied the odds to land on the show "Arab Idol."
Watch Thursday at 9 p.m. PT/ET.
New International Drama Lineup
This year we launched a new international scripted drama lineup to entertain our audiences with shows that shine a light on different areas of the world. Fans asked for it and we delivered on Season 3 of "Follow the Money," a series from Denmark following a world of greed and corruption.
The new series "Fauda" (Arabic for "chaos") shows both sides of the complex Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Both series will continue in January, airing on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
You might have noticed we rolled out a new look this year to speak to our globally engaged audience. Our new logo, colors, and programming are helping us deliver on our new tagline promising "A World of Difference."
