The independent station will begin its HD broadcasts with the noon news, and then gradually add HD to its other newscasts over the next couple of weeks.
WJXT will roll out its HD newscasts gradually to make sure everything is working properly. After starting Wednesday with the noon news, it hopes to add the 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. newscasts on Friday.
Subscribers to satellite systems DirecTV and Dish Network might not be able to see WJXT’s HD broadcasts right away, because the companies have not been carrying WJXT’s HD feeds. But the satellite companies are working on it and should be carrying the HD feed soon, Rafferty said.
