Ok, so CTV Ottawa has been HD for a few months now.

What is surprising to me is that their NEWS is still being delivered in a 4:3 aspect ratio !!!

Can they not afford HD cameras ?!!

Does anyone know how long before they "get with the program" and start filming their newscasts in the proper HD format ?

From their website...

When will CTV News Ottawa be available in HD-TV?

Good question -we're working on it. The switch to carry HD programming required some major changes to our infrastructure here at CTV in Ottawa, and so will the switch to produce our News in High Definition. That means changing all of our cameras, edit suites, and studio equipment. It's a big investment, but we're committed to doing it. In the meantime, CTV News Ottawa will be seen on our HD service. Our Standard Definition signal will be "up-converted" for broadcast on CTV HD.
