Why is Fox Soccer Plus not in HD?

Verizon charges $14.99/mo for Fox Soccer Plus and even with a subscription, the channel is SD. Will this change?

 

How is it decided whether a channel is HD or SD?

Thanks, Tom. My question is if DirectTV can offer Fox Soccer Plus on HD, why cannot Verizon? After all Fox Soccer Plus is extra at $14.99/mo.

I just signed up for Fox Soccer Plus channel 1009 in my NY area and noticed it is not in HD either. How can they charge 14.99 and not offer HD. It is really unwatchable in SD on an HD set. I think I will have to cancel unless this is going to be fixed in the near future.

Don't hold your breath waiting for HD. People have been yelling for it for years and nothing has changed.

Not sure what FiOS you have, but my FiOS gives me all the sports I care about in HD. Glad they aren't wasting space on even more soccer. Not like they don't already offer HD soccer on NBC Sports, all the ESPNs, YES, MSG, FSN1, BeIN, Universal Sports, etc, etc. That's more than enough HD soccer for most of us.
