    Are there any plans for Dish Network to carry a new news network called i24, which is set to launch here in the States on February 13? This network is already available in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.

    Probably not unless they pay their way to be on the lineup like Newsmax did, especially since they already stream online for free.

    I24 is available for free streaming. A good service.

    Great! Just what we need is another news network. If we don't have enough news networks messing thing up now. I wonder what side it will be on GOP or DEM or maybe the new Fake news party?

    All English International News channels seem to stream first and they are free. BBC World, Sky News (UK), France24, DWTV (Germany), Russia Today, TRT World (Turkey), I24 (Israel), IRE (Ireland), NHK World (Japan), Euro News, and others. I quit asking Dish years ago to add International New Channels, as they stream now, many in HD too.

    We have a few international news channels via satellite in the "English" packages. I'd say most pay to get their message to subscribers. Or at least have a rate so low that DISH doesn't balk at carrying them.

    I'd like to see BBC World News in AT250 before any other channels are added.
