Euronews is a multilingual and pan-European television news channel launched on January 1 1993. It covers world news from a European perspective, [cite web | url= | title=Many Voices One Vision | accessdate=2 January | accessyear=2007 | publisher=Euronews Staff,] in many languages.

In 2008 "Euronews" is distributed to 248 million households in 135 countries worldwide. The latest distribution report shows that "Euronews" is the leading international news channel in Europe. It reached more than 177 million European households by cable, satellite and terrestrial. This compared with 167 million European households for CNN International, 124 million for BBC World News and 65 million for CNBC Europe. [] [ [ Media Pack 2006 Q405 ENG ] ]

"Euronews" uses voice-over narration to accompany all news footage save for live coverage, and features a "no comment" segment dedicated to reports which exclusively consist of visual content.

Selected by the European Commission for a "mission of European information"cite web | url= | title=What is EuroNews? | accessdate=21 April | accessyear=2008 | publisher=European Commission's Audiovisual Service ] from amongst seven candidates, "Euronews" produces and broadcasts news programs simultaneously in eight languages on issues that pertain both to the European Union as to the world. The channel receives 5 million of funding each year, and 10% or more of its production must consist of information and debates which are directly related to issues regarding the European Union. The channel also devoted a significant amount of attention to EU related subjects prior to receiving this mandate due to its pan-European television network formation.

On 4 June 2008, "Euronews" redesigned its logo, on-air presentation and website.


As a rolling news channel, headlines from both Europe as well as the world are broadcast at 30 minute intervals on "Euronews". Brief magazine articles typically fill in the remaining schedule, which focus on market data, financial news, sports news, art & culture, science, weather, European politics and press reviews of the major European newspapers. These item slots will occasionally be displaced for breaking news or live coverages.

"Euronews" is currently broadcast in eight languages; English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Arabic, however not all languages are available in all countries. This multilingual approach prevents the use of on screen anchors, leading "Euronews" to use voice-over narration to accompany its news footage. An optional and "silent" audio stream without this voice-over is additionally broadcast with some "Euronews" transmissions.Fact|date=April 2007 Some items are displayed without commentary under the banner "No Comment", a segment which reports exclusively through visual footage.

"Euronews" recently expanded into Romania with a 30-minute Romanian-language newscast on Romanian second channel TVR 2, on weekdays at 9:15 AM. [ro icon]

On June 6th 2008 it was revealed that "Euronews" will be re-launching its Arabic language service, which existed between the years 1996 until 1999 and was terminated back then due to financial reasons.

In an exclusive interview with Faisal Abbas - Media Editor of the London based Arab daily - "Asharq Al-Awsat", Michael Peters - Managing Director of Euronews, confirmed that the launch event of the new Arabic channel be on the 12th of July 2008 and will take place at the "Institute Du Monde Arabe" in Paris. Peters explained that Euronews has secured a Five-year contract with the European Commission to secure finances for the new project at five Million Euros a year..
