The HD News Thread

Recommended Posts

What I would love to know is who is STILL in 4x3 SD!

 

I think these days, the HD launches of the past would be a major embarrassment if done today, unless it's some itty bitty market like Glendive where transitioning to digital was a herculean task in itself....

Sorry to bump this thread that is months OLD!

 

But, WSTM Channel 3 and WSTQ Channel 14/Cable 6 are FINALLY going to be in HD after broadcasting in 16:9 widescreen SD for nearly 6 years! As you can see on this link, a new set will be constructed as well. Plus... get ready for the Sinclair-ization graphics.

They`re probably going to get a standardized cheap set like the one WOAI and KDBC have.

CKCO has apparently gone partially to HD.

 

Studio shots are widescreen SD but some remotes and the graphics are in HD. Better than nothing...

Bumping a thread that hasn't been updated in nearly 5 months, but has WIVT gone HD or widescreen SD (considering they introduced new graphics lately)? Another thing is that with the new ATSC 3.0 standard, there might be stations broadcasting local news in 4K in the next decade or two.

In March 2017. And yes, they went HD at that time.

Bumping this thread to say that KETV went HD in October 2015, when they moved into their new studios. That should have been posted earlier, but was missed.

Sorry to bump a thread that is close to 2 years old.

 

But it is expected that in July of this year, WPTZ will move into their new studios. When they move, they will start broadcasting in HD.
