We have been told by corporate that we will be broadcasting full power
HD in 2006. At this point it's looking like the 3rd quarter but we're
not far enough into the project to get a date locked down. We don't give
waivers of any kind to viewers in the counties we have the rights to
serve. There's no temporary waiver system to help viewers like yourself
until we go full power but we can't give waivers to everyone that asked
for one because we would have to close shop & go home. Sorry for any
inconvenience this is causing.

I was curious if/when your station has plans to actually broadcast in High
Definition? I really enjoy a varitety of CBS shows, but am now currently
downloading them off the internet, so I can see them in a 16 x 9 aspect
ratio. It is not true high def, I know, but it beats the 4 x 3 digital
signal your station is putting out now. Actually I am guessing at this
because I can not even recieve your digital signal where I live (near
Battefield.) But I do know that the stuff I can download over the
internet looks better than the SD KOLR 10 feed from directv.
You probably get tons of e-mails asking this, and I underestand it most
be boring answering this over and over, but is it possible that I could
recieve a waiver for HD feeds of of Directv?
Thanks and I appreciate any background or information you can provide me
on KOLRs plans to go to HD.
