    Cool. I hardly ever watch KFOR news. Did they do it again at 10:00? I’ll have to check them out tonight.

    Recorded the Tuesday night (2/3/9) 6 PM and 10 PM broadcasts. Both were in 4:3. Actually looked pretty bad, IMO.

    Are you sure you didn’t have you set or box set to stretch or crop mode? I’ve looked a few times and it’s always been in really bad 4×3 SD.

    I’ve been meaning to comment on this but could not remember my old username. Anyway, I caught part of this broadcast on Mon. night during the 6:30 p.m. broadcast. It began as the normal washed out 4:3 picture then went to commercial break around 6:40. When they came back from commercial break they were in studio in HD and introduced the “Great State or What” segment which was also completely in HD. When this concluded they returned to the studio in HD then broke for another commercial. This time they returned in the old ugly 4:3. Needless to say I was shocked at what I saw so I rewound the dvr and watched it again. I’m positive that it was HD and the picture was on par with that of the Tonight Show. Now I have not seen any more local HD on kfor since then. Hopefully they were testing and are close to being ready to broadcast the news in HD full-time.

    Sounds like a test to me (or possibly a mistake…). Maybe they were thinking to start broadcasting the news in HD on or after the DTV transition. It sounds like all the OKC stations are still going to shut-down analog on Feb. 17th anyway, regardless of the new June deadline.

    The “Great State or What” segment at 6:40pm on 2/09/09 was also in HD.

    Yep, I saw it too. It was just like last Monday’s segment.

    so, they can broadcast their news in hd, they just choose not to? makes no sense.

    Maybe its the on-air talent that doesn’t want them to go HD. That washed out SD signal can hide a lot of wrinkles 😉

    It also kind of sounds like the stuff they’ve shown in HD were things that were produced and shot in HD. They had storm coverage on all day and clearly don’t have the infrastructure to do live remotes and/or in studio stuff. But at least they’re getting ready…
