It's a radio show with pictures, visually HD is an unnecessary expense in my opinion.:lol:
Thank you and
Best of luck

I expect TheBlaze will do fine ... it has an audience. That audience may or may not include you or me, but there seems to be an audience for it.

I also would not pin its success or failure on the outcome of the election. Mr Beck and his fellow hosts will find something to talk about ... whether it is a president they don't like or an opposition party that is blocking the president's plans. I'm sure they will have an opinion and someone will want to hear it.

And those that don't want to hear it will have over 250 other video and music channels to choose from.

I simply don't add this one to my EPG and move on.

There.

Now that was soooo hard. :rolleyes:

You could make the same argument about all of the news channels as well as the sports channels, using that logic.

I believe someone posted before, though, that there are HD shows available with the streaming package... so I would think they would like to also get that up on Dish eventually.

Unless the news is hot and the anchors are too it's background noise in my house....HD is non essential for news or commentary, serious news that is.:lol:

While Glen's radio program is part of TheBlaze lineup, his formerly web only evening video show is aired on TheBlaze and there are non Beck hosted programs as well where the camera and people in front of it move.

Almost every program on The Blase has multiple camera angles and moving cameras (sometimes moving a bit too much IMO). I guess they saw the "radio with pictures" argument, perhaps from watching Don Imus's televised radio program, and wanted to spice things up. Even shows that are not on the radio (such as "Real News") get the cinema vérité treatment.
