Not Like Before
I miss the streaming broadcast of Al Jazeera English. I have no interest in Al Jazeera America. Americans turn to Al Jazeera BECAUSE it isn't American. We're attempting to hear another perspective and we liked the format that we found. Why does America not just watch Al Jazeera English, like the rest of the world?
Also, the type of Americans who would watch Al Jazeera are urbanites who often eschew television. I have no tv service. I channel surfed one time this year for about ten minutes while bored in a hotel, then stopped, because tv is horrible. You're messing up with your target demographic here.
I would pay to subscribe ONLY to the streaming version of AJE if I could do so from the States, without having to subscribe to cable. I pay for Netflix, I pay for New York Times content and many others. I just won't pay for Honey Boo Boo or Duck Dynasty. I will never get cable.
A pleasant surprise
given the money behind it, I was not surprised that the interface is smooth, but I am a news junky, and the surprise is that the reports seem remarkably evenhanded. It reports on news from around the world, perhaps a bit more of the Mideast, but still far more widely than my local papers try.
Ok I'm a liberal, but no fan of extremist Islam (or any other faith) but this news source seems remarkably dedicated to the news, without an appreciable slant - left, right, religious or otherwise). It may become my favorite though I'll to read from a variety of sources.
I wish I still lived abroad
I had been living abroad for the last couple of years and I absolutely loved this app. I loved the live stream and watched it constantly. Now that I am back in the States I can no longer utilize this and am directed to Al Jazeera America, whose app is a joke and the website only offers a limited number of shows and the station is not available in my area. The other features on this app are fine but I can't utilize half the features which made it such a great app in the first place. PLEASE! Make it available to all of us again!
