Al Jazeera Opens Talks With U.S. Cable Providers ...

Read it in TVNewser:

Al Jazeera English has begun talks with cable providers with regards to expanding carriage stateside, the company says. AJE says it is talking to Comcast–the country’s largest cable provider–today, with additional meetings slated throughout the week.

The news of the meetings comes as the Doha, Qatar based network continues to ride the wave of positive PR stemming from its impressive coverage of the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt.

Umm, on behalf of my little local cable outlet, no, thanks.
