I can't seem to get closed captions for Al Jazeera English (channel 457). I called the technical support number, and the guy told me that the station doesn't broadcast closed captions. As I understand the FCC regulations, they must include closed captions.
Can anyone help here? Is anyone able to get closed captions for that station?

on my stb this channel is Here Network...
Not here in North Texas; the Here network is 445 which is what I get when I try to go to 457, since 457 is not available it displays the next lower channel that is available.

Couldn't find it via the channel line up, so I am gonna go with a no on that.
I also remember seeing on the twitter another person asking about it. and the rep said not in the next 5 channel additions.

Al Jazerra is available only in select markets (areas of the country) according to local demand. For example, it is available in the Washington, DC area but not in most others. Use the following link to determine if it's available in your area:
Then enter your zip code.
It will probably be an extra charge for "Foreign Language" channels.
If it is not available in your area, try requesting it from Verizon. If they get enough requests for that channel, they may add it to the local lineup.

If you like Al Jazeera, demand that your Satellite or Cable TV company ad it to the lineup as a dedicated channel 24/7.
