Al Jazeera America Absent from U-Verse TV

Time Warner Cable and Al Jazeera America today announced they have reached an agreement to bring Al Jazeera America to Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks customers' lineups. AT&T U-verse, where are you?

Re: Al Jazeera America Absent from U-Verse TV

I wouldn't leave AT&T U-Verse over Al Jazeera. The reason I have AT&T U-Verse is for networks like MTV-U, MTV Jams, VH1 Soul, CMT Pure Country, and others that Time Warner refuses to carry, not to mention Time Warner's terrible equipment.

 

Time Warner announced they are adding Al Jazeera America, I believe in January. I guess I'll have to go visit my sister, who still has Time Warner to watch it. 

 

I've seen it, and I'm impressed. It's serious journalism, something you can't find on CNN, HLN (Court TV 2.0), Fox News and MSNBC, which are mostly garbage that isn't even remotely "news" Fox and MSNBC cater to political bashing (One for the right, one for the left), CNN is laughable, and HLN has turned into Court TV 2.0. 

 

If they can settle this out of court (They did add beIN Sport to the lineup, which just happens to be owned and operated by Al Jazeera.)

 

With that, there's no reason why they couldn't settle something and add the channel back, particularly in the 200s with the rest of the news channels. 

 

I guess we just have to be extremely patient.

If at&t wants the lawsuit dropped,  they should just add the channel.  Duh. 

I have a feeling the channe isn't carried because Al Jeezra isn't like

Neither are any of the other news channels ( CNN, CNN Headline News, CNN International, BBC World News, MSNBC, CNBC, NHK Newsline, Bloomberg News) on U-Verse like Fox News Channel. Your reasoning fails.

I doubt if we ever see Al Jazeera America and I can live with that. I am sure some could leave and get it with another srevice. Good luck if you do.

Re: Al Jazeera America Absent from U-Verse TV

Please keep it off U verse.  I am tired of paying for cable channels I do not want or watch.

 

Please allow less stations in the package and lower the bill.

 

By adding it to the package, I am paying for it and I do not want to pay for it or the 50 other channels already on the package.

I agree with the poster above. While you are at it it please keep the extremist Blaze channel off of U-Verse as well.

While you feel like you are paying for channels you don't want, bundled tv deals are the only way without completely cutting the cord that you'll be able to watch.  While I probably wouldn't watch it, I'd rather have every new channel show up.
