Correction, RNN Rise was made a cable exclusive a year or two ago while the subchannels now have MEGA TV, Arirang and GCN. Cablevision just has the main channel, which will have one of Al Jazeera's newscasts at 5pm, they don't have Rise like FiOS and TWC has. The main channel has infomercials most of the day, but evenings they have news, Frasier, Cheers and some other shows. They did have a 24/7 regional news format back in the day, including portions that focused on Long Island and New Jersey, providing an alternative to Cablevision owned News 12 and Newsday, but because of low penetration, and the court battle with Cablevision refusing to accept the must carry request, the numbers were low. Hopefully this results in people in NYC, the largest DMA, actually WATCHING the channel and form an opinion for themselves before dismissing it as "that terrorist channel"
