You may or may not remember a certain slimy former Vice President who sold his unsuccessful cable channel to Al Jazeera, Arabic live TV from Qatar giving them an open sesame into American hearts & homes via the best medium possible their teevees!
So you need to find out if you are paying for Al Jazeera and how to cancel it if you are. You will likely have to downgrade your service (I’d call this an improvement not a downgrade), but you may not even miss what will be gone in addition to trashing AJ -and you’ll save some money every month in the process.
Hint: if you had Current TV in your cable TV line-up before, you now have Al Jazeera thanks to Al Gore who sold his station for $500 million. A true patriot, huh?
If you’re a Comcast subscriber, Al Jazeera is part of the programming you are paying for. You need to downgrade to the Triple Play Package.
Direct TV also carries Al Jazeera, but if you cancel the Ultimate Package, you get rid of it and save some money!
AT&T and Time Warner Cable do not carry it! You can possibly switch to AT & T U-Verse if available in your area or Time Warner Cable.
BTW, you are not alone in wanting to get rid of Al Jazeera. In Egypt Al Jazeera is under scrutiny from its own reporters for supporting the Muslim Brotherhood which on its website refers to Al Jazeera as ‘the greatest Arab media organization’. You remember this is the media outlet that rushed to show all of Osama bin Ladin’s video dispatches. It’s garbage, no more than Qatar funded propaganda. We don’t need it! It’s hard enough dealing with CNN, MSNBC, ABC, etc.
