    I have never heard of this channel. Apparently a pro-Israel network that focuses on news from the Middle East, Africa, and India; news about people who immigrated from those places; and Jewish topics.

    Assume this is a time buy.

    It will be an app like Cheddar. It will be HD if your Internet connection through your receiver is good enough.

    It is in the press release from Altice that started this sub thread.

    Canal+ HD (2010), CNews HD (2011), and StudioCanal HD (2012) (all of DirecTV's French channels) are to leave DirecTV effective December 31, 2019. I received a post card from DirecTV last month informing me of this. Numerous calls to customer service, including "managers," have not provided any answers.

    Does anyone have any information about these channels being removed?

    Thanks,

    Jon

    In most cases Customer Care only has the information that is available publicly. In the United States the Canal channels were only carried by DirecTV whereas in Canada they are carried by multiple providers. It could be Vivendi (the owner of Canal) is ceasing distribution in the American market after their channels failed to gain carriage with other distributors. The other option is DirecTV's agreement with Vivendi has expired and they couldn't come to terms on a renewal.

    Logically the only reason I personally can see for them being dropped this soon is at Vivendi's request after the channels failed to gain distribution on other providers. I highly doubt AT&T is signing small term carriage agreements of 1-2 years.

    This situation is similar to MBC Drama HD where it was added but only Verizon FiOS and DirecTV signed on to carry it. After about two years both providers ceased carriage of MBC Drama HD but still carry the regular MBC in their respective Korean packages which has wider distribution.

    TV Japan is the only international service that limits its Satellite TV distribution on purpose. It was initially carried exclusively on Dish Network then moved to DirecTV exclusively. However it has wide distribution on cable and IPTV services.
