I needed to ask since I am interested in getting a channel without being accused of anti-semitism and links to Al-Quaeda :D :D

Anyways, is the Islamic Channel legal to have?? I live in a pretty non-Muslim environment and I want to watch programs (esp with my parents) that educate Islam.

Thanks.

There are no Islamic channels in America, as far as I know. Or are you talking about starting one? If so, why don't you contact CAIR and other such orgnazations to see if they are willing to come up with such a thing, because they usually are good at that stuff and know more about it. :)

My Son-in-Law watches Al-Jazeera and several other Arabic news channals via Satellite. He also watches a few Islamic channals from Pakistan. Most Satellite subscription providers will provide those, upon request.

My S-I-L is on "Dish Network 500"

Oh, I thought you were talking about a channel based in America. If you're talking about Al Jazeera, and any other station, get a satellite dish and you have to subscribe for those stations I think. But yes, they are legal! :)

Maybe you should try just getting one of those arabic satellites at home. I got one and it cost about £200 at the time, one off price and i get alot of the arab channels (some islamic channels or air relgious programmes), including some other ones like BBC worldnews 24.

Yes its legal..why not? There could be many promblems about that due to freedom of rights. I have satellite , and they have a arabic satellite that one can get also, Its thur another company but your satellite co does install it also, and you pay the deposit directly to the arabic company. call you provider and ask, thay are very kind with answers..at least here in Ohio they are. I did hear that they will be offering new channels on cable too, So i would just call them,,I too live in non muslim community and felt this another way I can connect with muslims, inshaAllah.. Allah bless u, ameen
