HD for NBC Local News

Message 1 of 4

I am in the Washington DC area and am wondering if others across the country has a answer to this or is experiencing the same as I am.  When will the local nbc news start broadcasting in HD?  This is news channel 4.  All of the other local news (fox, abc, & cbs) have been broadcasting in HD for some time.  I sent emails to them but no one replies.

It all depends on your local station. NBC12 in Richmond has had HD news for at least a year now. I think it has more to do with the station's ownership, how much money they want to invest, and how soon. In this market, NBC leads with HD, and the other network stations have fallen behind.

I am in Portland OR and all our local news stations have been broadcasting in both HD and SD for 2 years or more now.

Same here in southern California. NBC is in HD and has been for quite a while. If they are not in your area I'd be supprised if they dont pretty soon. I mean, it really starts hurting them if they are the only one not in HD after a while. I'm supprised to hear that there is still a network station in a major metropolitan area that hasnt made the switch to HD yet.
