At least the FBN is actually a full time HD channel. This would be worth adding much more than those part-time HD, most-time sd channels, i.e. TWC-HD, CNN-HD, TBS-HD, etc.

E* can skip this one for now and wait till next year, I'd rather have CNN HD and more HD channels from the Top180-250 in HD so they can swap out thoses boxes first along with the premium channel boxes too.

I would be happy with the SD Feed.

HD would be a Bonus!

According to Dave Ramsey this is supposed to be the largest launch of a cable channel in history. I am surprised Dish will not carry it the day of the launch.

I too would like to see FBN on DISH. If it is as professionally done and balanced as FNN it is a must have. Call or email Charlie now!

I watched for a few minutes on D* this morning. They kept interviewing the naked cowboy who claimed he was the #3 tourist attraction in NY. That's real hard hitting business news folks.

I have Dish and BHN. BHN is carrying it today in SD. It looks fantastic even in SD. Hopefully Dish will add it this week, in HD.

I do remember on Charlie Chat not this past time but the one beore. Charlie said something about hd "talking heads". He said he did not see any need for these hd channels. I am sure someone can look it up and see what he said for sure. I would love these "talking head" hd channels Charlie!!!!!

I would be interested in having this channel as well..... however, I would be happy with the SD version only... not sure I would put enough priority in the HD version at this time.

Unless E* is able to make room for more than the estimated 12 HD spots... I think there will be other HD channels that should be lit up before this one over the next few months.

I received this standard email back from Dish. I just wish they would reply with something more than a canned response. I join with all others in hoping that Dish carry this channel sooner rather than later. Maybe if enough people would write in, they would move quicker on this.

I hope they don't give it in my package. I love the idea my $ don't go to Fox News, it would great if they don't go to Fox Business either.

If FBN is at all like Fox News then who would want it? I'd hate to base any of my portfolio decisions on a one sided, biased right wing fringe group's "reporting" of the financial markets.


I can just imaging the news ticker running at the bottom...


Pharmaceutical News - Merek might be working on new wonder drug to cure homosexuals. Pfizer might agree to place warning label on Viagra that states the pill is only for married couples. Energy News - Exxon might say not to worry about peak oil as earth might be proven to be 13,232 years old which would lend hope that fossil fuels only take hundreds of years to create not millions...



No thanks. I say lets not have it and that way we can't get secretly charged for it.

Comedy!! Another 'free speech' liberal. And I thought this year was going to bring another great depression since the tax cuts killed the economy, right? Oh...that's right, we have had 2 RECORD inflows to the IRS and the budget deficit has been cut by 200 billion more than expected this year. They expected close to 434 billion, and it looks like about 200 billion.

LOL!! Don't try to open your mind to the facts!! Keep drinking the Kool Aid and I will keep making money in the greatest story NEVER told!

I wonder what would happen to the capitalist market if the socialists (i.e. the libs) took over the executive branch, AND the legislative branch, both the Senate and the House...of course, you will still blame Bush, right? Or maybe Haliburton? Kool aid alert...Kool Aid alert...

looks like FBN is asking for 9 cents a month per subscriber, and would be in either the 200 or 250 package. I would also like to get ovation tv as well.

It would be great if they put all the sports stuff in a seperate pkg. I barely watch any of it, and that is where all our money is going.

Just called. They said they are "flooded" with calls for FBN.

Guess Murdoch is going to make it pricey for Charlie to pick-it-up. Two smart guys... darn.

charged for it.

Sorry, but I can't imagine a left winger even having a portfolio. Don't they usually just give it away as social programs?
