Al Jazeera to Cease Online Live Streaming of Al Jazeera English When Al Jazeera America Launches…

Mondoweiss’ Max Blumenthal scoops that Al Jazeera will cease streaming Al Jazeera English when Al Jazeera America launches…

Staff members of Al Jazeera have informed me that as soon as Al Jazeera America (AJAM) launches on August 20, American viewers will be unable to access the online livestream of Al Jazeera English (AJE). Because of restrictions imposed by cable providers, AJAM and AJE will both be unavailable to online viewers in the United States.

    And I thought our monopolistic TV providers were nasty. AJE is distributed by TV providers in Canada but that didn’t stop live streaming for Canadians. We can still watch AJE live on their website, YouTube, and Livestation. That’s too bad. The decision by US TV providers doesn’t make much sense considering AJAM won’t offer the same content as AJE.

  3. I believe Al Jazeera USA would be a better name for the new programming service coming soon. To me it is catchier and it would suit the new focus for the programming service much better than the name Al Jazeera America if it is true.

  4. Funny, I was always in favor of JOHN KING, AMERICA.

  5. I would have wanted to compare AJA’s broadcasting to other outlets but since I have an outlet that won’t carry it and no streaming will occur then I can just skip it. I’ll stick with what I see now.
