Why no RT?

I notice that Videocon does not broadcast RT - Russia Today (International news). It is a free news channel. DD Direct, DishTV, Airtel has it.For those *not* familar with RT - It is one of the more reliable International news channels today (Yes! A lot lot lot more than BBC, CNN and so on. Which will surely come as a surprise to most. Listen to their news for a while and you will be convinced hands down, yourself). They show and speak of such important issues that other channels barely even discuss. I became a lot more intellectual thanks to watching just a few interviews from RT. I believe others should benefit from this too.Note: No news channel is 100% reliable. Some being relatively more reliable than some others. RT being a rare one which is standing apart from the rest by a mile. Do take this channel *too*, with a pinch of salt, especially for Russian related news (which most of us dont care about, so not really an issue. But International news, a totally different beast!!). Am glad to see at least one news channel trying to do a honest job (if not succeeding). Hope D2H will play its part in broadcasting a news channel that shows a very different view than most other mainstream news channels.

Yes. I am familiar with it. If I am right, RT is relatively new while Al Jazeera is much older. It is decent for International news, mainly for the middle east news. Another channel on the rise is China's CCTV.

China's CCTV is Totally controlled by the Chinese Govt. So Any News abt China emanating from it, is thoroughly Filtered
