This channel is great - very similar to CNBC-HD and just as impressive with all the data and tickers they manage to squeeze all over the place. Also agree with what was mentioned earlier about the "HD Wing", it's a very effective use of the space.

The channel is labeled as FBNBHD in the guide. Should just be FBNHD, looks like someone fat-fingered it when they typed it in.

Does anyone know if Fox News Channel 360 is going to HD in the next 6 months or so? This is the news channel that I like, and I haven't seen anything about it going HD.

I am getting slight overscan on the right side and at the top. In both cases it is only a few missing lines. Is anyone else seeing this?


I am getting the overscan too but I get overscans on other HD channels too. Like ABC 27 and other channels and my TV does not have any settings to address this. I have a h-20 reciever and have the the picture centered by default.


FBCHD Channel looks good by the way.

I tried to watch the After Hours show, but it was really dumb and it wasn't in HD!
If it ain't in HD, it ain't worth watching!

That's what is custom about it. You tell it what you want it to show. Glad it actually works this way on the HR20 receivers myself. I am so fed up with the crap channels that my DirecTivo's add every day when I delete them out.


Yes, indeed.

I noticed that too.. Very annoying! I'm hoping that soon they can just get rid of "HD" at the end of all the HD channels.

What is more annoying is they have STZEHD next to STZWHD on the guide... So I always assume that STZEHD is Stars East HD, and STZWHD is Stars West HD... But in fact STZEHD is Stars Edge HD or something like that. Starz East HD is actually labelled as STZHD.

My vote - End the madness, and take the "HD" off the label. If it ain't in HD, it's not in my custom guide anyway.

Does anyone know what business package you have to subscribe to in order to watch this at a small business? You think they would have added this channel to all business packages.


Do you have this channel now?

No way. As long as there is an SD and an HD channel, the HD channel should be designated differently.

This is a great channel to watch in HD because of extra screen space and better detail it works great for business news. They always try to squeeze as much info as possible on a small screen with faces, tickers, running news lines etc it was always really hard to watch. Business channels from will benefit from HD format.

Watching it right now. Love it (HD). When they go to commerical they kill the sound, love it. Maybe this will become a new trend.

They need to do a lot more work with the onair talent and overall presentation. Doesn't hold a candle to the fit and finish of the CNBC product.

Let's give them some time. I expect some of their programs to change. Their Happy Hour looks like a waste of time.

Are my eyes playing tricks on me? All week long, FBN was televising both the graphics and studio programming in HD. Now it's only the graphics in HD, just like CNBC. What's up?
