KTUL news goes HD

doublej reported over the weekend:

KTUL finally made the switch this morning to HD for their news and studio programming. Looks like the field reporters are still using SD equipment.

How many stations does that make in Tulsa that now do news in HD?

    2 and 23 are HD, 6 isn’t true HD last I heard, but are 16 x 9 and looks good. 8 was the last one station to make the switch.

    KOTV and KQCW are still 16 x 9 digital SD. Waiting for that mythical new building Griffin was supposed to have finished by now.

    KJRH has been HD for several years, KOKI went HD back in the spring and now KTUL is HD. That is all the major stations in Tulsa with newscasts other than OETA, which is also HD.

      That’s too bad about KOTV. When KWTV went HD in Oklahoma City, they did it right because most of their commercials are now in HD. That put a lot of pressure on the other Oklahoma City stations.

    It actually looks very good on KOTV and KQCW. Everything else they broadcast is HD, so it doesn’t bother me as much since it is just the news in 16×9 SD.
    If we could just keep all the weathermen off during primetime, I would be really happy!

    wow okc is a bigger market and we have less hd than tulsa. grr…. 16×9 SD doesnt bother me either. KFOR really needs to get on the ball with HD Jeopardy/commercials though.
