Link TV is a non-commercial American satellite television network providing "diverse perspectives on world and national issues." It is carried nationally on DirecTV and Dish Network. It is broadcast over the air in the Los Angeles area on the 28.2 subchannel of KCET. Link TV was launched as a daily, 24-hour non-commercial network in 1999. It receives no money from the satellite providers, but relies instead on contributions from viewers and foundations.
Link TV broadcasts a mix of documentaries, global and national news, music of diverse cultures, and programs promoting citizen action. The network also airs English language news from Deutsche Welle, NHK and France 24, as well as various documentaries and world music videos. Select Link TV programs are streamed on the Internet, via the channel's website at www.linktv.org.
The network also produced Mosaic: World News from the Middle East, a program of translated news reports from the Middle East.
Link TV previously carried programming from Al Jazeera English but the programing was discontinued as part of Al Jazeera's entry into the U.S. market with Al Jazeera America. Al Jazeera English's news programing was replaced by that of France 24.
