Default Why Aren't ABC Football Games in HD??

For the second week in a row I came across my ABC regional game--Texas/Arkansas, and it is NOT in hd.
wtf??
Are all these regional games in sd?
I honestly thought all major network games were in hd now.
Anybody know the scoop on this?

hmmmmmm...............
well for me the prime time games are in hd, and the CBS national game is in hd, and the NBC Notre Dame gane is in hd, but these ABC regional games in the afternoon don't seem to be coming in hd to me.
What specific aBC afternoon game did ya'll get?
Did anyone else get the Texas game and can confirm they watched it in hd?

Yesterday I watched Penn State play Illinois on ABC --for awhile. The picture quality was clearly analog converted to digital -- grainy, blurry. Extremely poor quality.

yeah that's what I thought.
When the ABC games are on espn they are in hd, but it seems like many of the mid-afternoon ABC games that are actually shown on ABC as regional telecasts are in sd.
pathetic.
thank god the SEC is on CBS and ESPN mainly.

I noticed that too. For what it's worth though, ABC HD is by far the worst quality HD channel I've ever seen in my life. I have Charter cable so there isn't any bandwidth issues at the provider level. They've simply chosen a crappy resolution and an even worse bandwidth.

Jaw--are you sure that telecast was on your ABC channel or could it have been on ESPN?
they are both owned by the Disney obviously.
