No, I don't see anything ironic about it at all. FNC and CNBC aren't really competitors, and FNC HD doesn't even exist yet. Right now, DirecTV is grabbing up every HD channel they can get.
Do you also realize the irony that D* got cnbc before FoxNews??
It looks great, stretch-o-vision issues aside.
But yeah, how does TBS HD look on D*? Seriously, I'm asking.
