It's clear that one of the factors that both satellite providers use to differentiate themselves from cable is the fact that they have the capacity to carry international programming from every corner of the world. There's TV from Russia, the Indian Subcontinent, China, I would venture to say almost every Spanish-language channel from Latin America. However there's no foreign English-language programming. Everyone always chimes in that they'd like to see BBC World or CBC programming on DirecTV or Dish, but it's always assumed that it'd be lumped into the standard programming packages. So here is my proposal: What about English-language programming from around the world in a standard international package? I'd be more than willing to pay $20 to get BBC World, the CBC, Australian networks, and perhaps if it could be negotiated other BBC channels as well as the non-BBC networks from Britain and/or Ireland. Even better would be English-language channels from outside of the former British empire such as Al-Jazeera English, Russia Today in English, and so on. Am I the only person that would be willing to pay extra for this?
