Al Arabiya News Channel was jammed by unknown sources beginning early on Wednesday. It returned to normal broadcasting later on Wednesday.
This deliberate jamming seems to have been intended to interrupt Al Arabiya’s coverage of events taking place in the Arab region, especially in Libya and Syria.
The channel can be watched on its original permanent frequency on the Nilesat (12341 Vertical), in addition to the alternative frequencies of (12476) and (11488.)
Viewers can either do an auto-search for the new frequency or through the manual search.
This is not the first time that Al Arabiya has been deliberately jammed. At the beginning of the Libyan revolution the broadcast was jammed, and an investigation concluded that the jamming was instigated from a Qaddafi-regime intelligence center east of Tripoli.
