Re: Open Mind

How exactly does a network increase its ratings when no one can view it?

Well they could start the same way a lot of new networks do: Pay per subscriber rather than bill per subscriber. Once they get market penetration, then they can start billing per subscriber.

Al Jazeera English already offers carriage of their signal for free. Current TV did charge a meager sum of money for carriage but that will probably change now that Al Jazeera has purchased them.

It's quite unreasonable to expect a network to have to pay for carriage when they aren't selling anything like QVC and HSN.

Why is that unreasonable? Many networks did that, the list would include SciFi, Fox News, Cartoon Network, and many others.

They can fund it with advertising, just like everybody else.
