Is Al Jazeera going to appear on NZ Freeview Satellite?

Cheers

If sky has the rights then forget about it ever being on FreeView

It's already on Freeview (terrestrial). Has been for some time.

Hi Team 

You will need to talk to SKY, Kordia and Al Jazeera to show that you want the service on Freeview Satellite. Usually broadcasters listen to their viewers based on response and interest. Maybe one day we will see Al Jazeera unencrypted and free on Freeview DTH

Yes, I used to watch Al Jazeera.
I have not long moved from a Freeview terrestrial TV to satellite only TV area.

And if you have a Samsung SMART TV you can access the Al Jazeera app available on most models too.
