It is also a provider of live streaming world news which can be viewed via its website, YouTube, and various mobile devices and digital media players. In 1992, following the Persian Gulf War, during which CNN’s position as the preeminent source of 24-hour news programming was cemented, the European Broadcasting Union decided to establish Euronews to present information from a European perspective. The channel’s first broadcast was on 1 January 1993 from Lyon. An additional broadcast studio was set up in London in 1996.
