Al Jazeera America Will Air An Insanely Small Amount Of Commercials
Al Jazeera America will provide viewers with one perk that stands out from other network: It will only air six minutes of ads for every hour of television.
Al Jazeera CEO Ehab El Shihabi said that the compact commercial space is "one of our key competitive advantages ... we are not infotainment."
(of course, the network is new and has far fewer advertisers than its rivals, too.)
The network launches Tuesday at 3 pm.
