Monday!? Wow, that was quick. I was guessing it'd be around March of 2011. No, seriously. I got that vibe from those breathless "HD news soon" promos that have been running. They were, of course, shot in blurry-fuzz-o-vision SD 4:3 which made me think they haven't even gotten the back-end equipment yet in place to pass local HD content.
Contrast that with the hints that got out from NBC 13 and CBS 42. 13 had some news footage that was aired in 4:3 that was scrunched up 16:9, and of course the obvious studio redesign that went on right before the flip. CBS 42 hasn't announced anything that I know of beyond what I've heard here, but they are airing news promos in HD from time to time that look great. So obviously something's coming down the pike soon there.
But 6? All their stuff's quality is no better than some of the small town Mississippi stations I've watched recently. Pretty yucky looking.
