This doesn't really make any sense to me. If you really don't like CNN than why wouldn't you just watch the SD FOX News channel. It sounds like you really don't care much about content if you are watching CNN just because it is in HD.
He cant watch it because he has the HD only pack, and Fox News is not HD yet. A least not on E*

I hope they accomodate the people living in HI/AK first, because we only get 8-9 HD channels. Offering the same channels as CONUS would be nice, similar to what Direct TV offers.
Hopefully you aren't referring to 8-9 HD channels on a transponder :)

I BEG YOU FOX NEWS CHANNEL TO GO HD SO I CAN BREATH AGAIN!
No News Corp. cable channels were on the March 2008 Charlie Chat list. While the lawsuit between the two companies is over, I'm not holding my breath waiting for FX HD and I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for Fox News HD. They may make nice soon, but....

FYI, the remaining HD channels on the March Charlie Chat list not yet up are:

Rainbow Group: AMC, IFC
Viacom Group: BET, CMT, HBO2, MTV, MoreMAX, Nickelodeon, VH1
Other: Starz Edge

The VOOM lawsuit (Rainbow owns the VOOM group) may be a problem and the MTV subgroup of Viacom (CMT, MTV, VH1) are represented by MHD, so who knows?

Please keep the thread (and our forum) politics free.

CNN sucks but they are in the HD Ultimate package and Fox news is not.
You said Ultimate, not Absolute. Ultimate is the $20 add on to the AT packages that include (for AT200 and up) Fox News in SD. Absolute is the HD only package.

That being said ... please remember this isn't an insult forum. Let's get back on track of speculating new HD into existence.

HBO is not owned by Viacom. It is a property of Time Warner.
Sorry. You're right, somehow I screwed that up. Getting old seems to come with confusion.:lol:

Okay, I have the ABSOLUTE package meaning I have no Fox News Channel.
I will refrain in the future from a insulting post but the other poster came off unnecessarily arrogant.
Another poster new exactly what I was saying.
I love my ABSOLUTE HD PACKAGE BECAUSE I SAVE 48 DOLLARS A MONTH.

back to topic, judging by the big uplink that just happened, there is no new national hd, only locals, so all the free voom space is still there waiting for new channels

The reality is that it's going to be several years before most networks are showing 100% of their NEW content in HD. And most of the re-runs will be SD forever, with possible exceptions for older shows shot on film that can be remastered.

NickAtNite/TV Land in HD? Not much point in that unless someone is paying for a whole lot of new transfers.

At least channels like Comedy Central, while not "needing" to be in HD necessarily, still have lots of newly-created content that CAN be in HD, and will be produced that way as things go forward.
Too many "HD" channels are still producing new content in SD. Bravo comes to mind, and of course the ubiquitous MTV.

Fox News Channel and Spike; That would make the HD ABSOULTE package perfect for me.
Heck, I would be happy to get FOX in SD like MSNBC.

TVLAND will have lots of reality series going forward I read. :(

One more vote for FOX NEWS HD however I'll continue to watch in SD if that's all that's available.
Quite honestly I have watched some of the HD news stuff. (I have Directv and Dish HD)
All they really do is use the additional real estate for crawls and additional graphics.
Not really much true 16:9 HD content.
