    KCCI HD news on Tuesday

    I saw a couple ads during the basketball games today, apparently KCCI is following in WHO's footsteps and doing a segment of the news in HD on Tuesday night at 10:00. I only saw parts of the commercials so I didn't get the whole story, but I think they're calling it "High Altitude HD" and at first I thought they were using a helicopter, but I'm thinking they're actually taking an HD camera to the top of the Principal building for views of downtown.

    Anyone who saw the commercials care to add some info? I couldn't find anything on kcci.com, but could be interesting.

    Thats a start. It is painful to watch anything not in HD.

    Now if only the Big 12 could do something about its TV package.

    Looks like it was 801 Grand.

    I agree with ajk. Now that I've been spoiled with HD, everything else seems really bad.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Wonder if they're doing what WHO-TV did in pre-taping a news segment in HD and then passing it off as being "live."

    Yeah, that's a different story...

    I don't watch the news on tv much, but if one of the local channels would step up and do it in HD, that would definitely be my news channel of choice. I wouldn't care who had the most Doppler watts.
