As of press time, no TV provider is broadcasting Fox Soccer Plus in HD. Fox Soccer Plus is on DirecTV, DISH Network and Verizon FiOS, but each of the three channels are only showing the channel in SD.

But what would Fox Soccer Plus look like in HD if you could see it?

Thanks to an anonymous EPL Talk reader, here’s what it looks like. He was able to send us these screengrabs from Fox Soccer Plus’s distribution feed. He notes that “The quality is marginal as the backhaul feed from England was standard definition PAL > compressed down to 9 MHz bandwidth for satellite uplink across the pond > framerate conversion from PAL to NTSC somewhere in the food chain > upscaled to high definition 720p for FOX Soccer Plus distro.”

Nevertheless, it gives us a taste of what we can expect in the future whenever one of the TV providers in the United States broadcasts Fox Soccer Plus in HD.

If you want to tell your TV provider to get Fox Soccer Plus or Fox Soccer Plus in HD, be sure to take action with this helpful guide.

    I still can’t get FSC HD on my comcast subscription, but at least I can get deer hunting and polish motorcycle racing in HD. Thanks Comcast!

      You can’t forget about cartoons in HD too. I mean cartoons in HD are definitely way better than soccer in HD..right comcast?

    There’s a post stating:

    From TW’s online channel changes page for NYC:

    “On or about April 5, 2010 we will launch Fox Soccer Plus on ch. 460 and Fox Soccer Plus HD on ch. 470. Both services will be part of our sports tier.”

    The sports tier! C’mon Comcast do the same now and add both FS+ channels to the sports tier.

    A friend of mine was in Norway on business and his hotel had FSC+. In fact we chatted on facebook as I watched England on veetle, and he watched in HD FSC+ in Norway.
    Then again we live in a country where a cable provider today cut ABC over a dispute.

  6. Ed says:

    So is Direct TV broadcasting FSC or not? When I search using this tool http://foxsoccer.channelfinder.net/start.asp is says it is available in HD in my area. The picture is 4:3 and the channel doesn’t show in the HD channels. If this is their idea of HD it is terrible!

    Exsqueeze me, but this is supposed to make me want this channel?

  8. ibelee@gmail.com says:

    “the backhaul feed from England was standard definition”

    …expect this to change! If its live in the UK its produced in HD. i’m sure FOX just need to establish relations with non-Sky UK broadcasters

  9. RIP says:

    This is such a joke rollout. It would make sense that providers carrying FS+ would also have HD. They aren’t going to charge more than $15 so what could they be negotiating. I hope this gets resolved soon.

  10. Jennifer says:

    Last week we sent a message to TWC Columbus asking about FS+ and FSC HD and received this update today:

    ‘Hello, Currently our plans are to add FOX Soccer Plus in its SD version to your lineup at the end of this month. I am sorry, but we do not have a timeline as to when its HD version or FOX Soccer Channel HD will be added. Thank you.’

    I’ll post an update if/when we hear more (date, prices, etc).

  11. Jious says:

    Good pics but far from something I would buy

    Its too much to pay almost $20 a month

  12. Diriye says:

    Who cares? I would be surprised if Comcast and Fox get their acts before the next season starts.

    World Cup games are around the corner in HD with Martin Tyler and the boys, What can we ask more? Thank you ESBN.

    I already lost appetite for all other competitions which is normal in a Word Cup year. Honestly I don’t mind streaming it. I hope they get their acts together before next season starts.
