There has been nothing said here (before you) to indicate that NBC will be 480p. My money is on what I said: 480i upscaled to 1080i. And then after more equipment (not programming) they will upgrade so that you get some shows in real HD, not upscaled.

Again, for the forseeable future, our signal will be in standard definition.
Also, through offline questions to KVBC, it was asked
"Does this mean, when you do go digital, you will be sending out a 4x3 format, 480 line picture, with no upsampling or HD content? "
The answer was "Yes" and basically to appease the FCC by going digital.
It was only asked if it will be a 480 line picture, and it was assumed to be 480P, since it is a digital signal.
This is all of the info that I have at this time, but maybe NBC SHIVA in LV will shed further light on this subject.
