    Just wondering if it is possible to subscribe or tune to Al Jazeera for people in the US. If its freely available from satellite could someone let me know which bird to point to? Thanks.

    Cox Cable of Fairfax (VA) has it too as part of some news/international tier. They also show about an hour or two every night on their international channel.

    it was playing in a mobil station in the boston area a week ago, with a middle eastern man watching it. i would imagine the station had a dish of some sort.

    Well, Steven K already gave us the link to Dish Network's package with Al-Jazeera, so it's obvious that it can be received.

    I would like to know if anyone knows if there's a "regular" station that might be broadcasting Al-Jazeera programming? For example, my local NPR radiostation carries BBC at night, and I've seen Deutsche Welle on some TV station every once in a while. It would be cool if some station would give us Al-Jazeera when their regular programming is off the air or something.

    In Sweden, there's a station that alternates between Fox News and Al-Jazeera (IIRC). Quite a mix. [​IMG]

    Wow. I thought that Letterman was joking when he said he could get Al Jazeera.
