This time we can blame the network for not being in HD.
Last Olympics the pricing was completely different ... but I would not be surprised to see Universal HD being offered to all HD subscribers - regardless of package - along with the two other HD Olympics channels uplinked today (and HD coverage on other NBC HD channels).
I'm actually am going to write to a few of my favorite stations I will no longer get, like msnbc, foxnews etc and tell them why I can no longer watch them.
whether they care..............
Wow, Fox responded in short order!
Hey Fox Fan,
Thank you for your interest in FOX News programming. We launched our high definition channel feed on May 1, 2008 with Time Warner Cable in selected areas. If, at this time, you are not receiving Fox News Channel in HD, we urge you to contact your resident cable provider to find out the specifics of its company launch plans for FNC-HD.
Thanks again for your interest in HDTV -- your input is incredibly valuable to us!
MSNBC does not broadcast in HD period at this time, so it's kind of difficult for Dish to carry something that does not exist. I'm not into the Olympics, but would by any chance what MSNBC is carrying be basketball and soccer? If so they might appear on an over flow channel or something. Time Warner will be creating two temporary channels for Olympic Soccer and Olympic Basketball, if that's what MSNBC will be indeed airing, maybe E* will do the same.
