UNC ED (EDUCATION)
UNC NC (NORTH CAROLINA)
Channel 17.1 17.2 17.3 WNCN Raliegh Durham
There 17.2 NBCSD looks compressed but 17.3 the new weather plus from NBC is sharp.
I could live with ABCHD UPN and ABC NEWS NOW COMPRESSED.
I thought 4 SD were all you could air at once but on a site I saw they show 6 at once.
You are right about NBC 17, it looks alright. I'm kinda not satisfied with their 17.2 channel. It looks kinda blocky with fast motion, etc. But it looks like their Weather Plus is bandwith intensive.
If you look at WRAZ Fox 50. Their primary HD and 2 subchannels look great imho. You can tell their Weather Center channel doesn't require as much bandwith as Weather Plus. That's why their 50.2 looks so good and HD channel looks fantastic. When they are running football, you will occassionally catch a glitch or two (jerkiness) in the Weather Center Channel.
I do agree about the WCTI branding. Maybe WCTI HD and WCTI DT would be more appropriate for 12.1 and 12.3. And one day on down the road, WCTI WX on 12.2. *LOL*
BTW, have you heard anything more about WITN's plans for a news/weather channel around the first of the year?
