Al Jazeera?

What is the deal with this? I keep seeing articles about AT&T being sued and bright house comes up as well for not carrying the channel?

I don't think many are really all that interested in that channel. Maybe they would be better off airing on HULU. We use to watch a few shows on a channel formerly known as Current TV until it was bought out.

Al Jazeera English has almost two million followers on Twitter, I don't know how well of a measure that is but it seems to be fairly popular.

Current TV got bought by Al Jazeera. Al Jazeera decided to rebrand the channel as Al Jazeera America. TWC and BHN dropped Current TV over low viewership numbers I believe. AT&T had agreed to carry the new Al Jazeera America channel, but changed their mind the night before the channel launched and pulled it.

Al Jazeera America is actual journalism, unlike the garbage that's shown on Fox News and MSNBC. It's unbiased, factual journalism with no bias.

I wouldn't expect Brighthouse to carry this channel. Since Time Warner negotiates all of their deals, it's unlikely to happen (on top of the fact that Brighthouse seems to have trouble negotiating all their deals lately). Time Warner pulled out when Current TV was bought by Al Jazeera,
I'm glad I have DirecTV for my television needs.

If you want to watch this Al-Qaeda propaganda channel you could always watch it online. Please add CNN International

But we do have CNNI... at least here in the CFL market (32904). Isn't it available where you live?

Not in Tampa Bay market. I had it on Verizon FiOS and seemed much better then the garbage on regular CNN which was just the spin of the day to get ratings.

Actually Time Warner is currently negotiating a deal to bring the channel to Time Warner and Brighthouse.

In fact if BHN adds it I'll cancel my service.

BHN, please add it. I beg of you. I'll never watch it, I just like reading about people getting bent out of shape over TV networks that can easily be blocked or *gasp* not tuned to.

I'm going to bet the people who get bent out of shape about it have never even watched it (it's available online and you can stream it through a Roku).

I agree with you, it's a worldwide news channel not some terrorist news network like some people make it out to be, I have watched it multiple times

When Al-Jazerra and Time Warner Cable come to an agreement, Bright House will likely add it.

And that they have done:

Guess it should be showing up soon.

Likely in both SD and HD.

Were also getting Ovation SD/HD back in January so both channels (Al Jazerra used to be current) that were dropped last year are coming back.

I want Pivot though.

If we do not get more Starz/Encore/Plex HD in the notice next week, Al-Jazeera HD becomes a strong possibility for this quarter.

Sky News is available in HD on a ROKU device. I watch it after the local news in the morning since I just have phone and internet service now. Oddly enough it is interesting considering it is the Fox News of the UK from what i hear lol. And I am not a huge Fox News fan.
