    Thanks for posting the link to that article. I'm glad D* will carry Fox News HD. I was worried that there would only be one HD news network.

    After replying I just realized that someone might be serious, and not making a joke. If you are serious, sorry. I just cant seem to grasp the need for all news to be in HD.

    LOL...

    It's actually not that I want my news coverage in HD to get every drop of sweat on people's heads. It's just FOX News' SD feed on D* is awful on my big screen TV, and the HD would clear it up a bit.

    I'd like the science channel and sci fi in HD before the news, though.

    If I remember correctly, this rumor was started by a man who claimed to be an "insider", but as a rule, his track record was pretty spotty and most of the predictions he made either never came to fruition, or took a lot longer than he stated it would (as in, years).

    There was a CREDIBLE source (an article), if I remember correctly that stated Fox was working on a SINGLE HD channel with Fox programming... though I haven't heard anything about it in a while. Personally, I would like to see FX being this channel as a simulcast of this channel isn't that great of an idea since a lot of the shows on it (King Of The Hill, That '70's Show, Married With Children, etc) aren't HD...
