  1. Oh. 16x9 SD? Maybe I'm wrong then; I don't live in Victoria or on Vancouver Island so I can't verify if it's full HD. I'd be surprised if CHEK wasn't in full HD by now, considering how ubiquitous it is. Also, Emarsee posted a full montage of the new look:
  2. The newscasts, at least, have been HD for a few years now.
  3. In the summer of 2009, CHEK-DT in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada was on the verge of shutting down. Parent company Canwest opted to close its over-the-air E! network, leaving its stations sold off (CHCH, CJNT, etc.,) repurposed (CHBC,) or shut down (CHCA and CHEK). CHEK's employees and local business owners teamed up to buy the station from Canwest and save it from shutting down on August 31, and after securing a "stay of execution" for the station to allow time for further negotiations, the employee-led consortium and Canwest reached an agreement on September 4, 2009. The consortium purchased the station for $2, and Canwest provided transitional support as CHEK began a new era as a locally-owned, independent station. (There was a TVNT thread about all this, and the saga was mentioned in the thread on the break up of ABC 33/40). This year, the station is celebrating 10 years of independence, and why not celebrate by debuting a new set and graphics package? The previous set dated to 2009, with the last graphics package dating to 2012. I think this is a nice refresh, and the set is quite good for a locally-owned independent station.

  4. That was the temporary set at Mercedes-Benz Stadium they used for the Super Bowl.
  5. I think of C Clarity the same way I think of Strive: I like certain cuts but not the whole package. Any cuts where the dumb vocals are nonexistent or heavily downplayed are usually among my favorites: WUSA's weekend 11pm open (they've probably switched to all cold opens since,) KENS's morning open, KIII in general...
  6. Your link is redirecting me to the Nostalgia subreddit.
  7. That's quite a departure from what they had. Also, while this change is probably just a coincidence and nothing else will change, the previous weather graphics were introduced in mid-2009, a year before the rest of the news GFX changed in September 2010. A really slow rollout of a new graphics pack wouldn't be new ground for WSB.
  8. Very appropriate Anchorman 2 clip:
  9. I hope that's not the final logo too. Even by C Clarity-era Tegna logo standards, that's just lazy.
  10. To add on to this, I think WSB itself had the bones of a good, flat-ish package from 1998 to 2006.
  11. While NewsChopper 2 now looks as if it's in motion - as opposed to the last open where it seemed like it was a still photo animated across the screen - that NewsChopper 2 shot still looks awkward and out of place compared to what's going on behind it. I'm also not a fan of that weird jerk the motion camera does near the end. Makes the whole thing seem a bit sloppy.
  12. Well, MCTYW had a good run at WNEP. Hope they're ready to C Clarity.
  13. On March 3, Chile's Canal 13 relaunched their Teletrece (T13) bulletins in celebration of the channel's 60th anniversary. I really like the music; better than the previous package in my opinion. Some of the graphics are a bit small and hard to see, though.
  14. No, the entire clip is part of the newscast. The first few seconds is the intro to a short "NHK News" bulletin, not a network ID. I don't even think Japanese TV stations do hourly IDs, they only ID themselves at startup and closedown.
  15. Nothing. Lists are still banned per the site's Guidelines:
