Re: News 12 Traffic and Weather goes HD next week

I'd like to know how this channel is now formatted on an SD box.
It's it letter box or 4:3 ?
There is no “dual" SD/HD QAM channel for this channel, so I'm going to assume it's letter box on an SD box.
Additionally, 4:3 "safe zones“ are being used so i see no point in this being in HD other than better picture quality.

It's 4:3, with just lower quality and the sides cut off compared with the HD. No bars.

You can say that about 85% of the content on television.
