Re: Fox News HD

Actually I had three people call in last night about the debates and wanting to watch them. According to the internet search I did, it was only airing on Fox BUSINESS News, which is a channel that ROGERS doesn't even carry.

I don't know about Fox News, but BBC World News used to be available on VIP.  But it's a shame that only centre-left news channels are all that's available unless you subscribe to that news package. News should be impartial, or at least balanced.

Then thats a problem with the channels, isn't it?  Not Rogers.

 

Its not Rogers responsibility to make sure everyone has equal access to both the right wing and left wing nutjobs on tv.

Nope, the government and CRTC ensures the mandated channels only have the left wing nutjobs. Smiley LOL

Fox News doesn't have actual news? I'm guessing you've never watched it.

Re: Fox News HD

I have been asked this questions for ever but no one in Rogers care, they ignore this question.

 

In my Rogers bundles I pay for extra news pack, only to have FoxNews at channel 181.  Why this channel in Rogers Canada is not HD? in the same time other news channel are full HD?

Re: Fox News HD

@shai167 Good luck with that. Canada's media industry is predominantly left-leaning.  Any news channels not of the same ideology are not considered legitimate news, but freak shows.

 

I'm getting a similar problem with PBS, which is certainly not right wing. I like to watch Austin City Limits, but most of the channels that air it at no extra cost, like WQLN, Rogers only have in SD.  Channel 525 WNED, which is HD, doesn't have it regularly.

Re: Fox News HD

I'm replying to a VERY OLD post in this thread (from 2012 - post #7 - where @angelus_025 says (regarding Fox News) "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."

 

It's funny that you say this, angelus, because studies have shown that viewers of Faux Noise actually KNOW LESS than people who WATCH NO NEWS AT ALL.  Studies of the audiences of various news shows note that those who watch Fox News are the LEAST well informed group out of everybody - and the audience who watch Rachel Maddow are the BEST informed.
