al-jazeera available locally?

just while we’re talking a little about television (by bizarre serendipity just had a 3 hour meeting with a documentary filmmaker who wants to make a doco about television), the other day it seemed as if Al-Jazeera’s english channel was tuned in on the tv at my brother’s care facility. (ie) available free to air. what the hey? no idea what frequency.

    Yes, Triangle does indeed have it.

    Typical that I didn’t need to google it. Sigh. Although my TV watching will be drastically reduced now that project runway has finished.

    It’s also makes up a large content of a new channel called “Stratos”, which can be found on the digital networks – Freeview channel 21 or Sky Digital channel 89.

    And, from October 24, Stratos will also be carrying “Scoop TV,” which I’ll be interested to take a look at…
