If you were watching Who Wants to be a Millionaire
on Monday evening, August 10, you might have noticed something different.
KAKE was NOT having to go to SD to overlay a weather ticker!!!
They finally bought the necessary equipment to overlay a weather ticker (or breaking news or school closings) over HD programming.
From now on, whenever severe weather deems a ticker necessary, then they can stay in HD, just like KSNW and KWCH have had the ability to do forever, it seems.
The only caveat I've found is that the ticker display is not in a true 16x9 widescreen ratio, but instead only fills the 4x3 center cut frame, but at least the black bar is transparent now instead of completely opaque.
I'm curious as to other's reaction about this long awaited upgrade...
