Islamic State (Isis) militants are reportedly launching the group's first 24-hour online TV channel.

Several social media users have since Friday (16 January) shared a teaser video, revealing that the channel will be named 'The Islamic Caliphate Broadcast'.

The TV channel was rumoured to be broastcast from the website,, but the site is now inaccessible.

The channel is set to feature a program called 'Time to Recruit', as well as a new video series by British captive John Cantlie.

Cantlie was last seen in an IS propaganda video on 3 January.

The IS militant group already operates a FM radio channel, Al-Bayan, from Mosul in northern Iraq and a satellite TV station, Tawheed, from Libya.

Online jihadist movements' analyst J.M.Berger says the website has been live for a while.

"My best guess is this is a fanboy effort," said Berger, reported The Washington Post.
