I was excited when this station went HD, but now I wish it would go back to analog (at least I could watch a show without getting a headache). Heck, it reminds me of the way the TV's were behaving in "Independence Day" when the aliens had tapped into the satellites
They still do broadcast 25, 57, and 69 in analog too. They can do this because all 3 are low power stations which are all owned by the same company. Because they are low power, they weren't forced to shut off their analog signal.
I know this might sound like a bit of a stretch, but they really do need to think about people who could have epileptic seizures who are sensitive to sudden flashes. I'm not such a person, but I grew up with one.. It's not pretty when it happens.
