Fox Sports Southwest

I have Dish Network. How come they show some games in both HD and Non-HD and other times they are only in Non-HD (both channel 416 and 416HD). The times where they are showing the game on Non-HD (channel 416), the 416HD channel gives the Dish Network message "Check back often to see if your favorite team is playing in HD".

What gives? I want to watch HD damn it.

I think it depends on the cameras available. The high profile games will be in HD, but some of the weekday games against lesser opponents will be in Standard Def. I hate that it has to be that way, but I've heard that broadcasting in HD is much more expensive vs. standard def, so they'll do the games in standard def to save money.
