Near-Silent Start in U.S. for Al-Jazeera: "Al-Jazeera's English-language network is set to begin operation on Wednesday without any distribution by a major cable or satellite system in the United States.

The all-news network, based in Doha, Qatar, said it would be available to computer users via a broadband Internet connection. But despite months of trying and delays in its launch date, it named only four companies available in the United States that would offer it.

The network also has appeared to have changed its name. Formerly Al-Jazeera International, it was referred to as Al-Jazeera English throughout a news release issued on Tuesday."


  • Al Jazeera started in the UK today and it has attracted some quite big hitters to front its shows so far. I have not seen it and I do not know how popular it will be here but as we have a large Muslim population, i think it will survive comfortably.
