Why is Fox News HD not available on Rogers ?
I have been asking this question for quite a few years and have never been able to get an answer.
Fox News has been broadcasting in HD for years, yet for some reason, Rogers will not add the channel.
I'd much rather watch Fox News in HD than some of the other channels Rogers has, such as the Fireplace Channel etc....
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
We heard your feed back loud and clear! I'm happy to share, starting today, we’ll be launching Fox News Channel in high definition (HD). With HD, the picture on the screen is clearer, less fuzzy and the text is easier to read. To enjoy the full HD experience we recommend watching the channel on an HD set-top box attached to an HDTV.
There is no additional cost for HD if customers subscribe to the standard definition (SD) version of the channel. Customers can see Fox News Channel HD on channel 181 or 1206 in New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Quebec and 181 in Ontario (excl. Hamilton). Hamilton-Mountain customers can see the HD feed on channel 468.
Hope ya'll enjoy the experience!
I am trying to add Fox News as it comes up on the list of channels (181), but can't seem to find the package to which I would need to subscribe. Very frustrating. Why offer a website to manage your account if somehow one can never find what is needed despite there being so many options?
You will be much better informed if you watch the Fireplace Channel over Fox News, or you can just make things up in your head, that is the equivalent of what you will get if you actually watch the channel.
Alternatively, just watch The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, he shows enough clips of Fox News for you to get your fix and you will actually get some honesty from Stewart while getting some laughs at the same time.
yeah if you get close enough to the TV you will feel the heat coming out of the fireplace, hahahahaha you guys know which one was even better?? it was that Swiss Chalet Chicken Channel, hahahaha what a Joke... why would anyone want to sit in front of their tv's and watch a bunch of chickens rotating on a rottisserie? hahahahahah too funny and to think we pay for that. I am surprised I am still with them..
Disappointing to see people complaining about the existence of the single conservative news channel (well, other than the amateurish Canadian Sun Media).
Come on - more choice is always better, even if you don't personally enjoy some of the flavours. I'd rather chew glass than watch MSNBC or CNN, but trying to muzzle or demogogue differing views is just lame.
Rogers is slowly doing this to as many channels as they can (a bunch of channels i noticed are in HD recently).
It may take some time though.. just because a carrier carries the SD version of the channel, doesnt mean they have the rights to the HD version.. it may be something they have to make a seperate deal for.
Good Morning @allanthompson41,
Sorry to hear you weren't able to catch the debate last night. If you are interested in FOX News programming in the future, an alternative to upgrading your cable package would be to add the News Theme Pack. This theme pack is available for $5.99 a month. The channels offered are listed below:
