@  24994J : (25 October 2014 - 04:45 PM) And yes, I realize that this transition would probably a completely different animal.
@  24994J : (25 October 2014 - 04:44 PM) I would not be shocked if a station or two was used as a test dummy for the technology. If I recall, weren't a few stations fooling around with HD in like '97 or '98?
@  rkolsen : (25 October 2014 - 04:28 PM) Question: Do you guys think in the next 10 years there will be a TV station in the US regularly producing a 4K newscast? And do you think there will be some networks go with 8K and some 4k like 1080i and 720p?
@  Viper550 : (25 October 2014 - 03:12 PM) The spectrum auction has been pushed back to 2016 http://www.pcmag.com...,2470984,00.asp
@  24994J : (25 October 2014 - 01:04 PM) Bill Simmons (ESPN NBA analyst) just debuted a new show on ABC this afternoon that is built around his Grantland website brand. Why is this important? They're using (at least for this episode) 'Roundball Rock' for the show's theme song, and it was glorious.
@  rkolsen : (25 October 2014 - 10:50 AM) and learned that Mo Rocca has an E/I show on CBS called innovation nation.
@  rkolsen : (25 October 2014 - 10:49 AM) Flipping through the channels and found that
@  News 9 Viewer : (25 October 2014 - 10:13 AM) @cbs2newengland It's really quite sad that NY1 is such a joke. Their bush league crap really puts into question the viability of local cable news channels. I mean, we're talking about a local cable news channel in market 1 whose main competition is a small time group of networks run by Cablevision. Their product should be at least decent, but it's far from even that level of quality.
@  CircleSeven : (25 October 2014 - 12:28 AM) @24994J Just when you thought you've seen it all......
@  24994J : (25 October 2014 - 12:08 AM) Nightline just did a story talking about monkeys with erections in Borneo. G'night, e'rybody!
@  rkolsen : (24 October 2014 - 11:02 PM) @cbs2newengland I agree they do need to use the calls, there could be multiple Fox 13s. They should of called it KCPQ because if it's airing on Fox News or MSNBC chances are it's going to be a Fox or NBC affiliate unless of course they got it from Network News Service.
@  cbs2newengland : (24 October 2014 - 10:30 PM) I use that quoted metaphor to describe the casualness our society has become, and how FNC doesn't have structure in their reporting
@  cbs2newengland : (24 October 2014 - 10:29 PM) FNC really needs to stop using screenames when referring to local affiliates Shep called the Seattle station "Fox 13" but apparently its really Q13, and not sure how they called the Sacramento affiliate. They need to use calls on a national level news program, not this "call my mother by her first name" approach FNC has been doing for way too long.
@  cbs2newengland : (24 October 2014 - 10:17 PM) If people think Pat Kiernen is like their Walter Cronkite, then they need to lay off the joint. I never took those morons seriously. I'm more of a Ch 2, 4, 5 or 7 kinda guy.
@  cbs2newengland : (24 October 2014 - 10:15 PM) @suquvalleywgal there is a reason why NY1 has no creditability. Stay Classy NYers and go f**** yourselves! (my favorite quote in Anchorman!)
@  rkolsen : (24 October 2014 - 09:25 PM) MSNBC's playout appeared to have a hiccup. After Maddow they started to play Lockup then the screen cut to black for 30 seconds and then one commercial. After the commercial it appeared the program was dead rolled (joined in progress) without any mention.
@  rkolsen : (24 October 2014 - 08:11 PM) In other news I wonder how much of a ratings bump WXIA and the Today Show got in Atlanta due to AT&T's U-Verse EAN screw up today which forced viewers to WXIA in Atlanta. WXIA said they got calls from four states so even out of market they must of been force tuned. I will say one thing their EAS alert is a lot nicer than Comcast's here which is a 4:3 black screen with a cheap CG generated message.
@  rkolsen : (24 October 2014 - 08:08 PM) @Matthew The thing I worry about with AMCN taking over BBC World's distribution is that they will increase the ad breaks. Now it's maybe one ad at :15,:25,:45,:55 past but sometimes an extra unpromoted story will air if they didn't sell all the breaks. Because I kind of like the continuous coverage.
@  Matthew Will... : (24 October 2014 - 01:56 PM) If you have to go national, I'd say watch Fox News. They're not doing their own reporting, they're mostly passing along what the affiliates are saying.
@  Matthew Will... : (24 October 2014 - 01:55 PM) School shooting in Seattle. I've posted Your Guide To Breaking News. Emphasizing one point - sources closest to the breaking news event are best. That means always check the market's local TV websites.
