    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.

    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.
