Jordan’s first 24-hour news channel Al Mamlaka (The Kingdom) has gone on air, with broadcast infrastructure supplied by Qvest Media and Independent Media Station (IMS).

The Amman-based news production facility is equipped with high-end technology solutions to provide fast and reliable workflows and enable Al Mamlaka TV to produce a live feed for satellite, mobile, social media and website, Qvest said.

The new independent TV channel will replace previous government plans to open a third channel affiliated with the Jordan Radio and Television Corporation (JRTVC).

While Al Mamlaka will offer public service broadcasting, officials have said that it will be fully independent from the JRTVC, The Jordan Times reported.

Veteran editor and journalist Fahed Khitan will provide supervision of the broadcaster as chair of the board of directors, having been appointed by Royal Decree in 2015. The channel’s directors include Ayman Safadi, Marwan Jumaa, Nart Buran and Bassem Tweisi.

Jordanians would witness an “advanced and qualitative leap with more freedom and professionalism’, in comparison with other Jordanian broadcasters, Al Mamlaka said.

The HD news channel , which launched on 16 July, is now broadcasting via the Nilesat 201 satellite.
