Well, he asked if it was coming either next month or sometime next year. I can only assume that it will come in one of those two time periods, although I have no reliable source for that information. Notice the :D

Don't expect FBN until News Corp and Liberty close the D* issue. There are probably exclusivity rights associated with FBN right now.

Why would you think that? Fox Business News is carried by Comcast, Time Warner, Verizon Fios and probably others. E* is the only major MSO not to carry FBN.

Not in my market. :D

I'm sure E* is "in negotiations" for Fox Business ... perhaps if Fox pays E* for carriage that will be a price E* can accept. :)

My point was the contract is there, individual franchise just have to decide whether or not to pick it up. Old Chuckie must use CNBC to check how much money he's making, so he probably deems FBN to be not 'compelling' enough.

I believe the question mark means that it is a question if I'm not mistaken

Well, since we previously narrowed it down to sometime either this month or next year, I would say that the odds of it turning on on Dec. 12th are slim. If it is turned on this month it has a one in 23 chance of happening on the 12th. If it is to turn on either this month or next year the odds are one in 388 or so. :D

Bingo.

Although this isn't confirmed - it is very much the case since News Corp and Dish have always had good relations. The original Fox News Channel was launched pretty quickly once it became more main-stream.
