Al Jazeera Mobile delivers global news headlines and updates to South African subscribers via SMS messages. As an alternative to conventional international news channels, with a news focus on key stories from the Southern hemisphere, Al Jazeera Mobile is well positioned to enter the dynamic South African market. Al Jazeera’s English-language television news channel is already broadcast to over 140 million homes globally, which includes 25 million households in Africa. The total number of mobile subscribers in South Africa is set to increase from 49 million in 2008 to 55.3 million in 2010, making the country a priority market for Al Jazeera Mobile. Mobile users are now able to choose from Al Jazeera Mobile’s Politics, Sports, Economics and Breaking News services for key updates straight to their mobile phones or PDA’s.
