The Dish MLB Extra Innings schedule for tonight shows the Ranger at the Mariners on channel 630. The listing has an asterick by it, that the bottom of the screen says "Showing in HD". Obviously channel 630 isn't an HD channel, so where is the game in HD?

The last time Dish carried a HD simulcast of an MLB EI game, they aired it on 9467, the HD PPV channel.
I don't think tonight's Ranger/Mariners game on 630 is being simulcast in HD on Dish. FSNNW may be broadcasting a HD version, if they are, it does not look like Dish is carrying it.

Just because it says "Shown in HD" doesn't mean Dish is carrying it.

In fact, Dish is carrying the Diamondback/Dodgers game tomorrow night, two Pirates/Cardinals games and a couple of Rangers/Mariners games next week.

This is more than they were airing last year. It's a big improvement.

It doesn't say "shown in HD", it says "showing in HD" and this is on Dishes website.

My 211 program guide shows that tonight's Diamondbacks Dodger game will be on 9467 tonight in HD.
