CTV News Ottawa now in HD

Just noticed last night that CTV News Ottawa was in HD.

I guess you can tell I'm not watching CTV News on a regular basis but now that it is in full HD I might watch it more often.

I never used to watch it much but for the past couple of weeks I have. CBC HD news is not as nice because they are still using SD cameras on 16:9 mode. It's not really HD and when you look at CTV you can see the difference. I do miss Lucy Van Oldenvarnabeld and Ian Black though.

Unfortunately, with the budget cuts at CBC, I'm afraid it could take a lot more time before CBC local news is in real HD. I'll be watching my local news on CTV from now on.

Agreed. Government has really tightened the purse strings on many things that affect the taxpayers. This is small compared to what they are doing in other areas. It is nice to watch real HD for the local news. Not to mention the fact that CBC has been showing FIFA games in place of the news most nights. It seems games are more important than the news these days. I don't get that.

With some of those CBC news anchors, you don't want them to be in HD. Just feel lucky you have any CBC or CTV news coverage at all. A lot of cities don't these days.

I love the CBC Ottawa news anchors. They are top notch and very professional.
