Al Jazeera Mubasher (AJM) Arabic: الجزيرة مباشر‎, is a television channel launched by Al Jazeera Media Network on April 15, 2005. It is an all-Arabic channel based in Doha, Qatar that broadcasts conferences and other events live without editing or commentary, using subtitles when translation is needed. The channel is also sometimes referred to as Al Jazeera Live,[1] as Mubasher is an Arabic word for Live (as in live broadcast).

Al Jazeera Mubasher is the first channel of its kind in the Arab world and is similar to the U.S. channel C-SPAN and UK channel BBC Parliament. The channel also has a live stream of its broadcast on both its website and Livestation.

In 2014, the channel completed a graphics upgrade as part of Al Jazeera Media Networks graphics upgrade across the company.

Egyptian Channel[edit]

A similar channel called Al Jazeera Mubasher Misr (AJMM) or Al Jazeera Live Egypt similar to its original sister channel minus some commentary operated in Egypt based in Cairo from 2011 to 2013. The channel functioned similar to its main counterpart but was shut down by the Egyptian government after the 2013 Egyptian coup d'état on allegations the channel was pro-Morsi. The channel's staff were arrested but later released.

The channel currently broadcasts online from Al Jazeera's Doha, Qatar headquarters running video brought in though other sources such as YouTube and Reuters and press conferences taped from other news organizations in the country.
