    Can someone please help me understand who's decision is it...Dish or RSN...to not carry programming on the HD feed of the corresponding channel when I know for certain the game is available in HD? I get an immediate headache every time I see "check back often to see if your favorite team is playing in HD"! I can no longer watch games broadcast in SD...gives me the same headache. 60" TV's are not designed to show sports in SD. This causes a seriously frustrating experience for a professed NCAA College Basketball Junkie. Equally as frustrating as when I heard Gus Johnson would no longer be calling NCAA Men's Basketball on CBS. I need to stop typing before you will be able to literally hear my scream of frustration through your PC/Apple/Android speaker! :grin:

    The HD feeds on the Regional Sports are provided in Joined In Progress due to a bandwidth issue that DISH Network has. We can only carry so many regional sports simultaniously that we can only provide so many in HD and then the rest are in SD and will switch to HD when the bandwidith become available. I apologize for the inconvience this is causing you.

    So any timeframe when this will be fixed? After all, according to your nauseating ads, you are the "Industry Leaders" in HD.

    Bandwidth deals with available transponders. Dish would either have to drop a lot of channels to free up the space or get larger satellites in orbit. Not a quick fix unfortunately.
