    HD and SD Fox Business are available (check Uplink Activity for satellites).

    HD Fox News is available as well.

    And now I look at my receiver instead of the Uplink Report ... No HD.

    The HDs are available to someone, just not someone I know!
    206 Fox Business is apparently Classic Gold 250 level.

    Ditto.

    (Although I can ease into HD versions after watching Dave Ramsey at 8pm. After only being able to listen on the radio perhaps in SD is all I can handle of Dave (other than brief appearances over the years on CNN). :))

    According to a reliable source you guys will have the HD versions of both channels no later than Wednesday and more Fox owned channels will be coming a week at a time throughout the month. BTW, the Fox Business SD was probably not supposed to be turned on today. The scheduled launch for both the SD an HD stations of FNC and Fox Business is this Wednesday.

    Do you know if FBN is supposed to be in the AT200 but they turned it on for the AT250 as a mistake?

    You can see Fox News HD on 9477 but it's redded out.

    This gives me hope that the FBN thing could be a mistake as well. :)

    The channel is where it is ... Classic Gold 250. If it goes somewhere else later it will be where it will be.

    We're not going to play the "sources" game here. Anyone can make guesses. How many Wednesdays have passed so far that were "new HD this week"?

    Let's stick with facts. Fox Business is on the air on 206 in SD for Gold 250 and AEP.
    Updates as events warrant.

    Hasn't been there for long as I have been looking for something like that also. Must be part of that "phased in" approach mentioned earlier.:lol:

    I see HD version redded out. Sure hope it gets added to Absolute. When I signed up a few months ago they told me I would get all HD added then and in the future. Then I heard it would just be until March... now I wonder. I'd rather have Foxnews swapped for Smithsonian, than CI.

    Anyone actually receiving it HD? Hoping the red will go white...

    Is speed owned by Fox? It would be awesome if we got speed by next Thursday in time for speed week at Daytona.

    I think the economic news is going to be be same in HD as in SD. We now have one more business channel to watch all those "experts" that are employed or have a vested interest in the stock trade telling us to "stick with them", "there's light at the end of the tunnel", etc. What is needed is a business channel that interviews more experts that aren't vested in the stock trade, ie Economics professors from many different colleges.

    Tune in at 8pm ET for Dave Ramsey. He doesn't play the markets. Most of his show is get out of debt without doing anything more stupid than getting into debt type of advice. (Advice your grandma might give, except Dave keeps his teeth in, so he says.)

    I've listened to his radio show for the past few years ... he's one of the good guys.

    I watched him last night for a while. Seems like he gives good common sense advice.

    OK, I get up this morning and now have Fox news HD on 205, Fox business 206 has disappeared and 9477 is also now Fox News HD. Look like E** had a little screw up yesterday.
