When I woke up this morning (6 am) and turned on fox news, Instead of being greeted by fox and friends, Al-Jazeera was being broadcast. On almost every other channel there was also foreign programing. Did anyone else experience this problem? It scared me to death. Yes I spoke to Dish network but they wouldnt confirm or deny that they were hacked. They just kept diverting my questions. They said they were aware of the problem and that their engineers were working on it. I would like to know what the hell happened, who did it and why..

Oh wow! I fell asleep with the tv on, turned to Headline News. What woke me up, was hearing a man speaking in a foreign language. I seriously thought one of my cats had stepped on the remote control during the night and changed it to some obscure channel, but when I checked to see what channel it was, I saw that it was still on Headline News (channel 202). I was so sleepy that I turned the tv off, and didn't think of it again until I saw your post. That's pretty scary! I wished I'd not been so sleepy and had paid more attention to what was going on! Please keep us posted if you hear anything else about this...

I forgot to mention that it appeared to be an Asian man, possibly a newscaster, speaking chinese, but not for sure since I still half asleep...
