Re: Chicago's WGN News now in HD!
said by brianbobcat :I saw CBS news out here in Naperville at Rib Fest over the 4th. They did have the Sony HD cameras then so I thought to myself that they must be going to go HD soon. Its just a matter of when I guess. I agree with you about the HD news. Why watch it in standard when you can watch it in HD. CBS and FOX will have to switch to HD soon. I would imagine it has an effect on ratings.
Well CBS' new studio at Washington and Dearborn will be HD. I saw a camera crew filming CTA busses last fall and I was talking with the cameraman in between busses, and they were shooting on Sony XDCAM even then, so all their "archived" footage from the past 12 months should be archived in HD as well. When I passed the new studio near the end of June, the interior finally had some sets up that said CBS 2 Chicago on them, so it could go live in the next month or two, granted it passes their internal testing. As far as FOX, they got that new set several years ago which seems like it would lend itself to HD (all the LCDs and Plasmas they have) the question is simply when. Lastly, I know I watch either ABC or now even NBC simply cause they're in HD and why watch FOX or CBS when they're not.
