Re: Al Jazeera America Debut

I'm uncomfortable seeing this channel on our system and apparently a lot of advertisers fee the same way.

Don't watch it then, no more discomfort.

Yeah, I can understand your view. I don't necessarily agree with it, though.

Personally, I am uncomfortable with the amount I have to pay each month in order to pay for the sports networks that are forced upon me in the bundled packages. I am uncomfortable with my local news being pre-empted when the business of NFL football runs over its allotted time.

It is not that I do not like sports. It is that I do not like the required purchase of overly-commercialized "sports" (that are really corporate entities more than sports) that are prevalent on cable TV. (please note that I do understand that ESPN creates jobs in my state)

I think one channel of alternative viewpoints is worthwhile in light of the nearly dozen sports channels that I am required to pay for.

Kudo to Comcast for carrying this new news channel.

espn probably creates thousands of jobs in Connecticut. Doesn't make it better that they charge your first born for carriage.

Agreement is abundant.
