While cable and dish services are swamped with religious channels, Muslims in the United States have unequal opportunities for access. MuslimChannels addresses this challenge with a unique approach, by offering the best of both worlds: Multiple live 24/7 broadcasts of religious, alternative news, and educational programming, as well as user video uploads, video sharing and formation of online communities.

Several alternative news broadcasts and shows are featured, such as Al Jazeera English, LinkTV, Press TV, and DemocracyNow. Religious programming will initially include two 24/7 live channels, featuring Huda TV and IslamChannels.

While the site opened this week with several hundred videos featuring documentaries, and educational content, libraries of other material are expected to be uploaded in the next days and weeks.
