Al Jazeera America is shutting down

On April 12, Al Jazeera America on channel 52 will go off the air.

Launched in August 2013, the cable news network struggled to find advertisers before its parent company, Qatar-based Al Jazeera, made the decision earlier this year to shut the network down.

Tony Karon, a senior executive producer for Al Jazeera America’s website, wrote a moving column at the end of February highlighting the network’s accomplishments and standards during its brief tenure.

For similar content, we suggest CNBC (channels 54 SD/654 HD), CNN (55/655), Fox News (57/657) and MSNBC (59/659). Also, all of Al Jazeera’s world news can still be accessed at its English-language website,

In the meantime, we’ll continue to monitor the television landscape and keep an eye out for a potential channel replacement for customers with our Preferred television package.
