Livestation is proud to welcome its latest broadcaster, LuaLuaTV. Named after the Pearl roundabout in Bahrains capital Manama, a symbol of the uprising in Bahrain.
LualuaTV was set up by members of the Bahraini opposition in London in June and launched on July 17th. But their stay on the airwaves was originally short lived; it took only five hours before their signal was jammed. The source of the jamming was quickly located to island of Bahrain, by Eutelsat.
Yasser al-Sayegh, the director of LualuaTV recently told the Times that the idea behind the channel is not simply a voice for the opposition but a place to offer multiple perspectives:“We want to give Bahrainis a different view point on their country, this isn’t just a political platform to criticise the government.”
LualuaTV’s broadcast is targeted towards the citizens of Bahrain, but through Livestation they also gain a global audience.
Lippe Oosterhof, CEO of Livestation says that “Livestation welcomes all points of view and our global platform provides a level playing field to broadcasters looking to build their audience in any part of the world.”
LuaLuaTV is now live at:
