No, we don't have anymore of an idea of when FNC HD is coming today as the guy who posted asking about it yesterday or the day before that or the day before that.

I don't know how accurate the info was, but in one of the other threads someone said Q3 of this year.

Nazcar, welcome to the board.

The answer is they've said sometime in 2008. Who knows when?

How many times do we need to discuss this?

I hope this doesn't start a political fire like all the other threads on this subject!

It's a pity Fox doesn't see the potential ratings boost having Laurie Dhue in HD...:sure:

I know, that's why I asked to please stay on subject. I wanted to do a search but couldn't seem to find a search option for this board... ??

Thanks for the input and the welcome :)

UPDATE... found the search, sometimes i just don't know how things get overlooked... i looked around for 5 minutes last time but found it in 5 seconds after I typed that lol

Fox is the best about this, as mentioned in an old thread title. I can't remember what it was I was watching on Fox News last night - maybe it was O'Reilly - but there were two beautiful blond babes discussing serious policy matters with the host. Beats the pants off of Bill Bennett or James Carville anyday.

Anyone know an easy way to see how many Fox News threads have been started and how many were locked?!?! I can remember approx 4 or 5 for sure. Thankfully this one has started out clean.

By the way, I know someone said Q3 in the other thread, but that seems a bit far out considering all of the revamping they have done with their sets. Perhaps they fear the fall out of seeing Greta's botched plastic surgery in HD.

Ive mentioned before that FOX -west palm beach, shows FOX NEWS SUNDAY in HD. Which is proof that the Washington DC studio (home to SPECIAL REPORT WITH BRIT HUME) is HD ready. I'd bet that the revamped FOX AND FRIENDS and FOX REPORT are HD ready. I thought FNC may flip the switch today (Super Tuesday) to show off their election set---very high tech.
Stay classy,FURLEY OUT! Have I really been coming here for5 years!?!

Just as with a lot of FOX's reality shows, it is possible that this show is actually Anamorphic LB Crop of 480p content. I have watched Fox News Sunday and it sure seems to me that the content is not 720p or 1080i.

Does anyone else feel the same way? If this is the case, then the set is not setup with HD cameras.

I've seen that show a few times on my FOX affiliate and it definitely looks like non-HD 480p. It's been awhile though since I've seen it.

I think I recall Steve, Gretchen and Brian from F&F saying that the new set was HD ready when they moved to it late last year. But I could be inhaling the propaganda fumes too. :lol:

Here we go...

Please keep all personal feelings about FNC and all other news channels out of this thread. Please keep this simply a thread about when FNC will go HD. There's been too many other threads that have been closed because comments like that snowball into a huge fight.

On Fox & Friends last week, maybe Thur. or Fri, Steve Doocy said it would be soon. Geraldo was the guest and commented about the show being in HD. Steve D. said that it wasn't in HD yet, but that it would be in HD soon, very soon.

I read somewhere else that it may go HD in March.

I was KIDDING, trying to bring some levity, hence the :lol:

I wouldn't be watching the channel if I didn't agree with it. In fact I'm watching FBN right now, for the record.

Jeez, lighten up, people!!
