    Uh, dude – CNBC-HD was up and running before Fox Biz News.

    CNBC-HD isn’t really HD though (though, I do thank you for pointing it out… I should have skewered them in the article itself). They are using 480 cameras and bordering/letterboxing it with stock tickers and displays.

    I hardly consider that going HD… anyone can letterbox 480i/p video… it takes actual money, time and effort to go true HD.

    That’s like saying that TNT HD is true HD. It isn’t… it’s 480p video at 4:3… which makes it EDTV.

    I for one refuse to call something HD that isn’t truly HD. If you think TNT and CNBC have gone HD, you might as well declare Nintendo Wii’s 480p to be HD as well.

    TNT and TBS are now both truly HD. MTV HD channels are the ones who are doing EDTV and calling it HDTV

    Yeah CNNHD is 1080i. Not everything is in HD but their election coverage looks incredible. The widescreen leaves a lot more real estate for election stats, etc. too. But it’s not stretched..it’s full 16×9 aspect ratio.

    not all of CNN is HD either, some of it is 480i with pillar box info, but it is enough to draw a devout fox news man like me away. none of it really matters anyway. at best, 1 or 2 small cable markets will get it first. lord only knows how long Dish Network will take to carry it. we still don’t have fox business HD and dish network gave us 12 new HD channels this month, they took all the VOOM channels away. now we all have the same HD channels that directv had over a year ago. the point is , it takes forever for the industry to market research all of this HD stuff, and only after they have figured out the most profitable method to distrubute HD content to the consumer, only then is it delivered to the mass.
