WOW! What a huge disaster!

Time to give up on WBBM-DT (in addition to WGN-DT, WMAQ-DT, WTTW-DT, and WFLD-DT). The only game in town is WLS-DT. Way to go ABC!!!!!!

Still has way too many "sparklies".

Maybe it is a simple case of them using a completely inferior MPEG2 encoder compared to HDNET? I can't imagine why there is such a HUGE difference.
