I think you may have FoxNews in HD sooner rather than later. FOX NEWS SUNDAY is in HD already so the DC set is HD capable. And Shep Smith's studio is under renovation as we speak. I doubt Ailes and Murdoch would let "CNN looks great in HD" go on for long.


It's 16:9, 480p, it's not in HD.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Yes but it's owned by iN Demand whose shareholders are Time Warner / Cox / Comcast. Don't think we'll see that anytime soon. Too bad, they've got some really good programming. Three Sheets is the only thing that kept me with cable so long.

Vote for all Discoveries, Comedy Central, and Fuse.

HR34-700 -> Elite VSX-43 -> Elite 50" Plasma
C31 -> Vizio 48" LCD
C31 -> Samsung 32" LCD

16:9 480i. Fox doesn't do anything in 480p.

Spike, definitely.

I also think it would be extremely cool if FMC and TCM remastered their libraries in HD and started broadcasting in the proper aspect ratio.

Anime Network HD when they create it


Not that I'm bashing Anime or cartoons in general, but why are they wasting bandwidth on HD cartoons? it's not like it's going to look better! it's a drawing for heaven sakes. and for that matter, The Weather Channel in HD? why?

does anyone really watch the SD channel of weather that isn't even local to you anyways?

Honestly I would say its a numbers game. Having a hd channel will make you more attractive to the providers who want very badly to advertise having the most hd channels. And bear in mind commercials are slowing moving to hd as well, no hd channel and you could lose revenue there are well.

Honestly though Ill take anime network in sd, hd, vod or any other way i can get it.

ALL the PREMIUM "Movie Channels" that I pay dearly for would be nice. FOX News also. I don't know why they would offer CNBC in HD. Is that so the stock crawler rolling by is more clear? LOL

I know people who have CNBC on all day until the market closes... I'm sure they'd like it.

It is a highly viewed business channel.

Actually, news channels would probably be great in HD so they could cram more stuff around the margins of the screen.

That's what CNBC is doing, they are upconverting their SD signal, and cramming market info into the additional space in the left and right margins.

Sorry but you are pretty much bashing anime. Were not talking Bugs Bunny here, but anime. Go rent Ghost in the Shell 2, Appleseed, Spirited Away and then come back and tell me we don't need a HD anime channel!:ramblinon

Yeah, I've noticed that as well. We just have to wait for Viacom to start their HD push. The only HD channel they have now is MHD, and they haven't announced any new ones.
