MSNBC’s Israel Launch…

Well this was a bigger todo than I had realized it would be. The Jerusalem Post’s Nadav Shemer writes about MSBNC launching in Israel on HOT…at the expense of CNN.

HOT cable television viewers now have a replacement for CNN, after MSNBC launched its channel Tuesday.

HOT dumped CNN from its package in November after refusing to match the terms of their previous contract because CNN has slipped behind Fox News as the top-rated news network. MSNBC, which is owned by NBCUniversal, will be available exclusively to HOT subscribers.

MSNBC chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell hosted her daily news program from Israel on Tuesday, interviewing opposition leader Tzipi Livni. Earlier the same day, Mitchell and company president Phil Griffin spoke at the channel’s official launch in Tel Aviv.
