Dish can put BBC News on in Arabic, but they can't put BBC World News on in English.

I think after BBC World News being available in the U.S. for the past several years and E* or D* not carrying it deserves this smile...:rant:

606 tells me that I'm not subscribed so apparently it isn't a free preview for everyone.

Won't matter. The rights to BBC World (English) in the US are already held by BBC America. So the Discovery Channel Network is the one any complaints/petitions should be sent to.

That makes no sense. DISH/Direct won't pay to carry it, so you complain to the people trying to sell it?

What would the complaint be? That they aren't trying hard enough?

Apparently they aren't trying hard enough, it's availability in the US is very sparse indeed.

The complaint would be they're charging too much for it. Or that they should include it in the Discovery Networks Package.

How is this any different from E* carrying Al Jazeera Arabic, but not Al Jazeera English?

Heck, I'd be happy enough if they'd add Mhz WorldView as a PI channel.
