Now if we can get ESPNU HD my wish list would be complete.
at work right now, but will top 200 silver with HD get this????pfan
Anyone have any inside info on which Turbo packages this channel will be a part of? I've been putting off upgrading to a HD package because of this channel. I tried asking a dish CSR via chat, and was told "we understand your concern, but it is not offered in any package at this time". Apparently SatelliteGuys is the best source for this info.
I don't even know what my programming package is called now. I signed up for HD Only plus my Locals last year after it became available. I haven't changed anything since. Does that make me "HD Absolute", "HD Only Turbo"...what?
And I'm located in the MidSouth if that makes a reception difference. (Yeah, I know, A MidSoutherner resisting the liberal brainwashing. Big surprise)
Yes- I have 200 Silver w/ HD and have Fox News HD.
From reading here, since Fox News HD launched a little earlier than planned, HD only packages Turbo Silver and Gold do not have Fox News HD until E* programmers add it to those packages.

So is Dish going to continue to charge extra for Fox News, while CNBC & CNN are included in the cheaper, more easily available teir? Meanwhile libs complain about "fairness" because they don't have a strangehold monopoly on the radio market, too.That is HD Absolute, it is unlikely new channels will be added to this package.

COME ON CHARLIE. PUT 'EM IN THE SAME TEIR!
I don't want to hear any bs about wholesale channel purchases and why junk channels are in the basic teir vs good ones.
MAKE IT HAPPEN!
CNN is the most general news of the cable news-es. It goes in AT100.
MSNBC is also in AT200. So they are not treating "left" and "right" stations differently.
Also, "junk" and "good ones" is a highly subjective notion.
You may feel that CNN is general and not loaded with liberal bias, but I don't. I watch it, but I can only take so much of it.
How is MSNBC's AT200 position proof that they are not treating "left" and "right" stations differently? I don't know that there is intent to make Fox News require more investment to access, but the end result is that one has to invest more to get FNC than to get multiple liberally biased news channels. I didn't mention MSNBC's position, nor did you address the fact that CNBC is also included along with CNN in the basic teir in your response.
True. When I made the statement I presumed that this subjectivity was understood given the fact that I posted in a thread where most other participants are especially interested in Fox News. But thanks for pointing out the obvious.
Ask most people off the street what the top cable news outlet is, and you will hear CNN. Sorry you prefer different.
