They both look great. I would have to give the nod to KJCT, because 720p is less affected by multicasting. Both compare favorably with Dish's best HD channels. BTW, KJCT has big plans in the works:
Sorry for being so late in replying, but I have been so busy working long days on the Grand Mesa installing our new full power digital transmitter. It should be on the air in the next two weeks or less if all continues to go ok and as planned.
On another subject, I am also working nights with the installation of our new
HD one hour delay server and integrated receiver/decoder. It is going very good as well and should have it on the air maybe next week if all goes well with this also. This will allow us to put prime time on the air in HD.
Whew, I'm tired.\\
As far as the World Cup airing in SD and not HD, I checked into this and the word from traffic did not inform operations that we should air it as HD vs. SD.
Our operators cannot make these decisions on their own. I think I have this straightened out and the next games should be in HD. I know that the NBA games have been airing in live HD.
I hope this works, keep in touch........Roger.
