KOCO Channel 5 News Now in Widescreen SD

As a few people have pointed out, KOCO is now broadcasting its news in HD. I’m not exactly sure when this started, but it’s happened in the last week or so.

This means more than half of the major network affiliates now have local news in HD with only KWTV and KOKH trailing the pack.

Update: It’s been confirmed that they are broadcasting in widescreen standard definition and not HD. It’s an improvement, but it makes you wonder when all the stations will get on board in high definition. Also, note the cables running outside the 4×3 safe area…

KFOR crews are in the process of upgrading all of the translator towers in northwest Oklahoma. First up was the Seiling tower this week, where they removed the old high band and low band VHF antenna arrays and installed new digital transmitters and antennas on the tower. When this week’s redo is complete, the tranlators at Seiling, Mooreland, Gage, and Alva will retransmit digital signals of Oklahoma City TV stations 4, 9, 25, 34, and 43.

KOCO-DT Broadcasting From New Antenna

KOCO-DT is broadcasting from their new antenna that is attached at the top of their tower. It looks like there is still some fine still tuning going on so if do have KOCO-DT in your channel guide it would be a good idea to do a rescan.

KOCO-TV Analog Antenna Coming Down

David Evans is quoted that the new digital antenna could be installed as early as next week. I would guess it would still be a while after that before they would actually use the new antenna. I am sure more infrastructure work will need to be done because they can start transmitting on the new antenna.
