Pan-European news channel, Euronews has announced a number of developments for 2011 to improve its service and reach. In January, the channel changed its on-air ID and switched to a 16:9 widescreen broadcast format, and in the coming months plans to show more presenters and reporters on-screen in a break from its unique voiceover-only presentation style.
During the year, news bureaus will be opened in 11 new locations around the world – Beijing, Dubai, Istanbul, Kiev, Moscow, New York, Paris, Tel Aviv, Shanghai, Warsaw and Washington – to expand the channel’s news gathering. Ukrainian will join the multi-lingual soundtrack in the summer to become the 11th language used by the channel.
Launched in 1993, Euronews is owned by 21 European TV networks, and broadcasts from ASTRA satellites at 19.2°E, 23.5°E and 5°E.
