    You've not been following the story. The free broadcast of Al Jazeera English on 97W Ku-band is going to go away, and the web stream is going to be IP-blocked. I presume that this means the end of the Roku and mobile streams as well. I don't know what's going to happen with the rebroadcasts on other channels.

    The news on CCTV-9 is always enjoyable. It is fun to get China's spin on things. Why not add Al Jazeera to the party?

    I have but it was to be blocked starting in April. Then the report was they had decided not to block it or if they did only temporarily. And I thought the Apps on smartphones/Tablets would not be blocked. If that has changed I was not aware of that and that would be a shame.

    Okay let me rephrase it . I don't like having channels that I do NOT watch in my guide. So I block them. Including SD channels that have HD equivalents. I block them. I don't watch sports channels-and wish I could not pay for them either. I don't watch religious channels or shopping channels , Country music, or News channels that I don't share a view with. I don't like this news channel due to the name alone. I know it is supposed to be a domestic news channel ,but I can't help but believe their will be an underlying political slant behind it that I simply will not agree with ,nor do I want to be exposed to it.

    CNN and MSNBC are tabloid news sources. Fox News is the only 'news' channel that has a flat out political agenda.

    bein Sport has done fine up to now. No 'death to' Clint Dempsey or Fenway Sports Venture ads. Al Jazeera shall be interesting, because it may do something that no other news network in the US does, cover the news.

    But given time, it'll probably devolve into showing reality programs about Arctic fishermen.

    MSNBC also has a clear bias, albeit one I often agree with. But, bias, none the less. It's usually pretty obvious.

    Of the three, only CNN is relatively unbiased. OTOH, they are run by and programmed for idiots. I often can't watch because they infuriate me with their stupidity.

    So true. Cable/Sat TV is just a vast wasteland of reality-based programming for idiots.
    FYI:
    -It's "couldn't care less", not "could care less".
    -It's "would've", "should've", and "could've", not "would of", "should of", and "could of".
    -It's "voila!", not "walla!" (That's right. You've been speaking French all this time.)
    -The first word in each sentence should be capitalized.
    -A period goes at the end of each sentence.
    -Commas are also a good idea, on occasion.
