  1. To be fair. NBC News posted an article well before you posted this. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.today.com/today/amp/tdna226149
  2. NewscastStudio tweeted out that it was known as Look S about two hours before it’s name was known in this thread. So this time they didn’t steal from us.
  3. Couldn’t find anything. So they’re not doing anything structural to the building. But from what I’ve heard about NBC during Comcast and even during the GE years that there was always construction going on in some part of their condominium unit.
  4. Time for me to go check the permit office in NYC… let me see what I can find.
  5. Here’s a sneak peak of WTTG’s new set when they move from Washington DC to suburban Maryland. Right now the launch date is supposedly mid to late July.
  6. Generally takes a few months or even a year for the graphics to reach the RSNs.
  7. One is Technicolor, they take DirecTV feeds and they can be rearranged any which way. Some TVs such as ones on newsroom ceilings maybe controlled by a controller such as a sports bar while others maybe using commercial televisions that are used to decrypt the feeds. They have ATSC decoders so when your station gets pulled from DirecTV you can still monitor it. Comcast had lineups for organization like college campuses where you don’t need a box for every TV and can login like you do at home for their TVEverywhere lineup.

  8. I shudder to think of the picture quality on that channel.
  9. Glad I can continue watching WBAL when on vacation in Rehoboth or Ocean City.
  10. WJZ is using double 16:9 boxes now. Same background. Not full height.
  11. There could be a variety of reasons such as no space left on the signal.
  12. Meet The Press is being switched out of the new bureau, they still have to bring over equipment. @Weeters said the CamBots, the jib, and steadicam.
  13. Very nice. Like how it essentially replaces the bottom line.
  14. Can’t wait to see the PQ. The two channels Start and Dabl, look poor on cable.
  15. Yeah, there have been rumors of standardization for years. I assume when or if they do it will be a completely new package.
  16. Shame I liked him. He was good journalist. But when UP was cancelled they didn’t know what to do with him, gave him an hour on the weekend afternoons. But that didn’t last.
  17. Worth noting it’s been in use the entire time during covid for Early Today and some MSNBC shows.
  18. That is typically the case when it comes to new presidents in general.
  19. He boxes like that were some odd design quirk. They do something similar when it comes to meteorologists names. Why? I do not know.
  20. Let’s see if this works.... https://imgur.com/a/2bqjjmw
  21. Darn. Trust me, the ceiling changes colors. If it was painted blue it wouldn’t be able to.
  22. I believe they hung something similar up, not quite as big for Super Tuesday or 2018.
  23. I expect after Election Day there will be wall to wall coverage because with all the absentee voting going on we will not know the outcome by 11PM Tuesday.
