EuroNews is welcoming millions of new viewers across the United States. At a ceremony in New York, the channel’s President, Philippe Cayla, announced EuroNews will be broadcast on Dish TV Echostar, one of the country’s two main satellite platforms.
EuroNews already reaches nearly 200 million households worldwide. Director of News, Luis Rivas, says US viewers will be served with a wide variety of issues important to Europe’s many member states. “We are talking about countries in Europe, their problems. For example, who else is talking about the end of the welfare state in Sweden, the reform in Germany, the possible split in Belgium and the problem of abortion which will be voted in Portugal.”
