Free Speech TV?

Can Comcast/Infinity start carrying Free Speech TV?  https://www.freespeech.org/  It's already being carried by Dish and DirectTV and would make a nice counter to Fox.

MSNBC, CNN, CNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC etc aren't "counters" enough?

Re: Free Speech TV?

In a word, "no"!  Furthermore, the only counter to those networks listed is MSNBC.  The others have totally forgotten the words "because" and "but" in presenting their so-called news.

Comcast is not in the business of politics, it would be nice if the users on this weren't either..

Please add Free Speech TV Channel to lineup

[ Edited ]

With the loss of Current TV, we've stopped watching early morning shows. However, adding Free Speech TV to the channel lineup would bring back the shows we would be watching and more. Dish and DirecTV both have Free Speech TV channels.

Re: Please add Free Speech TV Channel to lineup

Please add Free Speech TV to your tv listings. As mentioned by others, your competitors have already done so.  Many of the shows and personalities from CurrentTV would be available thru Free Speech TV and would be a great replacement for CurrentTV.

Thanks.

Please add Free Speech TV to the channel lineup. The Direct TV and Dish networks offer it and its a great voice for progressive voices.

Do you really think that anothe post for the same topic (that you just replied to) is of value?

Re: Please add Free Speech TV Channel to lineup

Adding Free Speech TV would bridge the void created by the loss of Current TV. Al Jazerra is an excellent news source but here in Ann Arbor,MI we would like some progressive opinion as well.

Re: Please add Free Speech TV Channel to lineup

I have been a comcast customer for many years. I am considering cancelling comcast and getting a roku to watch free speech tv unless comcast brings that channel. It's a great, informative channel and would be an asset to the channel lineup.

Re: Add Free Speech TV to channel lineup

well as a first time user (of any message board) I first created my post and then I saw the other earlier posts pop up, so I absentmindely agreed with one and then when I saw how many other prior posts there were I realized that continuing was foolish. 

 

now as for you, was it a worthwhile use of your time to snark at me for that?  I hope it made you feel real smart and all.

Re: Please add Free Speech TV Channel to lineup

Agree!!! Not sure how these forums work or if Comcast even responds but there you go. Freespeech TV should also be offered ( not for extra charges though! ) ASAP!

» Mind you, I think Al Jazeera is a terrific addition (regardless the circumstances).  It's the best source of hard news & information in the country today.  (scracker, n.mia.)

Free Speech TV

What will it take to get Comcast to add Free Speech TV to the line up? I know some Comcast systems have it but not all.  It's a great station that should be available to everyone.

Re: Please add Free Speech TV Channel to lineup

I think adding "Free Speech TV" would be a great idea for progressive TV viewers of Comcast.

[ Edited ]

I agree Free Speech TV should be added to the line up.  There are a few other "news" channels my system that are from Foreign countries so it would be really nice if we could get a US channel carried on our Cable System.  Especially a news channel that is based on the old news prior to the elimination of the Fairness doctrine and the Telecommunication Act.

Non-corporate Free Speech TV is a must! - if Comcast has the cajones.

Would like to see FSTV carried by Comcast.  I have Roku, but can't DVR on Roku.

Re: Free Speech TV?

CatamountMN, 

 

I too have a Roku but that only works for one TV unless you are going to move it from TV to TV which I have done. Comcast would be wise to listen to us before Roku does come up with a version that has a DVR attached.

Re: Free Speech TV?

Please add Free Speech TV...MSNBC is NOT a counter to Fox. FSTV is counter to corporate media period. Please offer this. Direct TV does.

That's exactly why Comcast won't carry FSTV, they're part of corporate media and support the TPP. They're dismantling MSNBC, which Comcast owns, to be a non-progressive station. That's why Ed Schultz was just let go and Chuck Todd hired there. Todd is a corporate mouthpiece and Comcast wants MSNBC to be a corporate mouthpiece.

Re: Free Speech TV?

The changes at MSNBC are disappointing to say the least, and a dangerous pattern that explains why Comcast will never add Free Speech TV.  I have to watch it on my computer.

Add Free Speech TV to Comcast!!!  Or is Comcast censoring the news because they don't want anti-coporation talk?

In a word, no!  They are not counterbalanced at all.  Free Speech TV would be the counterbalance.
