Why "HOUSE" is not HD?

I know I have viewed "House" in HD. But the last couple of weeks I realize it has appeared in SD 4:3 on the Global HD channel. What am I missing?

Were you watching on Global HD? American Idol has been running past 9:00 pm the last two weeks, and for whatever reason Global isn't able to deal with that. It was HD on FOX though (at least on BEV it was).

If Global isn't showing the programme at the exact same time as the US network can air it in various time zones, they don't seem to have the capability to record/show the programme in HD (unlike CTV for example).

Heroes - Audio Sync Problem - First Global airing of a non-concurrent programme?

Bit of a pain with the Ch 531 situation.

They meaning Global. It is a joke, which is actually not funny on Global's part
