The network broadcasts in 480i (SDTV), but runs a high-definition feed in 720p (HDTV). To cater for scheduling conflicts caused by sporting events enfolding at the same time, the channel maintains an overflow feed known as Fox Sports Southwest Plus.
Sports teams that are regularly featured on the network primarily consist of franchises from South Central United States. These include the Texas Rangers (baseball), Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans (both from American football), Dallas Stars (ice hockey), New Orleans Pelicans, Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Mavericks (all four being basketball teams).

OTT partners Sling TV and Fubo TV additionally carry live streams of games telecast by Fox Sports Southwest, online and on mobile devices.
