BBC, Al Jazeera, CNN Internatinol, Euronews have all been unavailable the last few days.
That's not really too unusual. Sometimes those just didn't work but Al Jazeera AND CNN International have completely disapperared.
(forwny face) - not that CNN is any great loss, but AJE is gone too? It was the one news broadcast that I could fall asleep to!!
Sure, I might hear the same AJ Newshour numerous times while I dozed, but they don't have anoying commercials like the others.
I always wondered how this works.....you didn't really get permission from all those sources you retransmit - or perhaps just connect us to via your Roku channel, did you Nowhereman?
I know Al Jazeera caused quite a kerfuffle in the US when they launched AJ America. Apparently we weren't supposed to be allowed to watch AJE after that, but AJA is filled with horrid commercials although the news content is very similar to AJE. You can't even watch AJE on the internet anymore if it thnks you're in the US. You get redirected to AJA.
I cannot fall asleep if they're playing some commercial every 10 minutes telling me I'm dying of mesothemeola or that I shoudl invest in gold or whatnot.
Anyway, much respect Nowhere - I would donate, but I'm pretty sure you just made this available for your own amusement - and besides I am poor right now.
I will miss Al Jazeera. Seriously, I would put it on for background ambience most of the day and into the night while I slept
CNN will NOT be missed.
