Euronews, a new service backed by the European Commission, is now available to viewers in the Washington, D.C., area, over the MHz network, a nonprofit broadcaster based in Virginia.

In the past year, Euronews featured daily newscasts on MHz Networks 1 (MHz Worldview DC), and it launched its full-time 24-hour channel April 14 via MHz Networks 10 on Comcast cable (Channel 280).

Euronews will also be launched throughout the spring and summer on Cox, RCN and Verizon FiOS and via regular over-the-air broadcast on June 12.

Launched in January 1993, Euronews covers world affairs from a European perspective. Euronews is broadcast 24 hours a day, simultaneously in eight languages: Arabic, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian. It reaches 256 million households in 144 countries.

It’s also available online at www.euronews.net.
