    A few months back there were rumors that Dish was going to pick up Fox HD and broadcast it for those who were eligible like they do with CBS-HD. The prevailing wisdom was that this would happen about the time the NFL season kicked off. I then read that Fox was investing a ton of money in HD equipment and planned to broadcast almost all of their NFL games in HD, unlike CBS which will only do one each week. Now the NFL season is upon us and I haven't heard much lately but it does seem odd that Fox would invest so heavily in HD if only a handful of their affiliates can use the feed. Any news?

    no word.

    But a lot more than a few affiliates will be using HD. pretty much every fox station that has been doing the 16x9 fox boradcasts has been upgraded to the splicer system (with a few exceptions as always of course). D* will be carrying the e/w fox stations and all the o&o and white area people can see them. Alos each of the 6 games that fox does in HD will be on Sunday Ticket, each week. So certainly not a waste of money for Fox.

    Of equal concern, when will E* start carrying NBC-HD. I believe D* already struck an agreement with NBC similar to the CBS deal.

    Sorry NBC, doesn't broadcast 24/7 true HD content and not just something "stretched out" so it doesn't meet E*'s requirement for new HD carriage :lol:

    There was never a rumour that DishNetwork was going to carry FOX-HD.

    That's what makes what I said funny. What I said is what charlie said they are looking for when adding an HD channel.
