Seams to me that it is intentionally not in HD. CNN is in HD and way more pleasant to watch then SD programming. It’s highly likely another Liberal tactic to keep the sheeple focused Left.
First of all, Fox News isn't even available unless you subscribe to an extra cost news package. The left leaning news channels like CBC, CTV and CNN are all on basic cable in HD. I can toggle between them on my kitchen TV with a DTR or my main TV. If I had the extra news package including Fox News that would come up SD with a windowboxed screen unless I zoomed it, not at all attractive. The decision to broadcast Fox News in SD in an extra cost package has to be political.

Corporations like Rogers do not make political decisions. They make economic decisions to maximize profits for their shareholders. Although Fox News is quite popular in the US (but no longer always number one), the channel had/has very few people watching in Canada. Very few. IIRC from a few years ago, in Canada, it had only a couple of thousand viewers and less than 1/10th of the channels like CBC, CTV. It is therefore likely that Rogers feels that the additional cost of airing the HD stream is simply not worth it for them for a couple thousand potential HD viewers.
