    The “Great State” segment on 2/9 was definately HD, as was the shot of Linda and Kevin, back in the studio after. The anchors seemed to be really stiff and had extra big smiles. They just sat there smiled and said “we’ll be right back.” None of the normal witty banter that they normally have. So I think that they definatly knew that they were still being shot in HD.

    Well, they did it again…I really think these are tests to make sure everything is right before going full HD.

    I think Puck is right i saw that they replayed it on their sunday morning broadcast(go figure) and although it was not shown in it full hd glory it was def shot with a 16*9 camera as there were bars at the top and bottom of the screen. KFOR may not be the garbage channel after all. i thought someone said kwtv was gonna switch first but after reading this kfor is gonna win this battle of first beisdes oeta. i really really cant count oeta as a major network. they have beautiful hd shows like nova but not my first choice in news.(which i cant see now since then went to vhf in stillwater, booo!)my only hope for pbs in HD is for dish to add it to the locals package which i dont see anytime soon grrr. btw my setup is a dish 211k reciever with a decent indoor/outdoor antenna i love that thing.

    The “Great State” segment was in HD again today. I’ve uploaded it to youtube for anyone who hasn’t seen their HD broadcast yet.

    Ok we can no longer call kfor the garbage channel. i never would of thought kfor would be the first to pull it off. kwtv/koco must be getting a little weary about these.im not sure why there waiting to go full blown hd all the time though but very very nice hd and thanks bsmall for the youtube clip. i love the cheesy grins at the end.lol there must be some huge promotional behind the scenes stuff happening there before there ready to go full time hd.

    Wow, thanks for posting the Youtube video, bsmall. I keep trying to catch the segment but haven’t had any luck.

    Since they obviously have the HD cameras and broadcast capability, I’m guessing they’re waiting on upgrades to the computers/software they use for the overlay graphics. The Great State segment didn’t show any of those.

    It’d be so nice to have local news in HD, OETA not withstanding…

    Okay, this thing is imminent – Nightly News just came on, and they have a NewsChannel 4 logo on the Nightly News HD feed…looks good, IMO (albeit somewhat out of place)

    my only guess is on why they are waiting is either computer software or lack of multiple HD cameras for weather/sports guys in studio.surely peeps from kwtv and koco knows about this.Im just thankful kfor is staying on uhf.

    Update (4 March): Well, they attempted to do the Great State segment in HD today, but there were audio issues, so they switched it to the ol’ SD signal…

    I saw that too last night. The HD feed certainly did look good though while it lasted…:-)

    Not the juiciest tidbit but if you are interested in the graphics vendor KFOR went with
