Re: Al Jazeera America

This is good news.  The more channels, the more viewing choices.  The more choices, the better.  Anyone who disagrees needs to have his head examined.  Because after all, if a channel is not for you, then you can simply watch something else.  A channel is not hurting anyone simply by being available.  If you like it, watch it.  If you don't, then don't.

Re: Al Jazeera America

Who will be the first to ask the forum if anyone knows what day Al Jazeera America will start on U-Verse as if anyone on this forum knows the answer?  Smiley Happy

Okay, I'll bite:"Who knows when AJA will begin broadcasting on U-Verse?"  Smiley Tongue

 

Seriously, there are email addresses for the reporters in the Bloomberg article that @Kong57 linked.  Maybe we should ask them , lol.

Maybe getting Al Jazeera America in high definition will open up the floodgates for additional news programming in high definition. Perhaps we will see the inclusion of Bloomberg Television as well as all three C-Spans. The interesting thing about CNN International, according to the latest AVS National HD Channel Lineups, is that there are no major providers that have the channel in high defintion. I assume the channel exists in high definition since it is listed.

I'm waiting for the jokers that will threaten to leave now that it's being included.

I want to say it was 189.  Someone said that a similar system had AJA on channel 220/1220, IIRC.

Re: Al Jazeera America

I think 189 is correct.

I bet it's still a few months before it gets added. The lawsuit being dropped may not necessarily mean that terms were agreed to.

Re: Al Jazeera America

There was no comment on either side but I hope it was a friendly settlement.

If so, it won't just be SD on 189

They have SD, HD and Mobile/U-Verse App abilities with new contracts. See BeIn Sport. If they add it (hopeful) it will likely be in the 200s and the 1200s with the other news/info networks.

Re: Al Jazeera America

If you Bein, it is already part of the channel line-up.  You can get if you have U450 or with the Sports Package
