I find this very hard to believe given that KRDO had the 2nd of 3 games in HD this past weekend. If they were never notified then all 3 would have been in SD. And if they figured it our themselves for the 2nd game on Saturday, then Sunday's game should have been in HD too.
Lies, lies, lies . . . .
If only there was an easy way to support some other ABC affiliate (besides changing my physical address through DirecTV). With no competition, there is no reason for KRDO (and KOAA for that matter) to care about HDTV and they have both shown us time after time that they don't care!!
