B&C also writes about the “innovative” way CNBC will be going HiDef. The network will take “its existing 4:3 picture, shifting it to the left, and filling the widescreen frame with a bevy of 3D graphics displaying the latest market metrics.”

CNBC HD+ will launch this fall on DirecTV, but, B&C writes “CNBC will be actively pitching it to cable operators as well.”
