KRMA does produce an HD feed. It is OTA and Comcast provides it.


If that's the case, the OTA HD feed must have launched within the past two days. My understanding is that it is broadcast in 16x9 SD.

Comcast could receive a separate HD feed directly from the station, or they could be presenting the widescreen SD format. At some point in the past, they offered a national PBS HD feed in Denver.

"Most markets"? I don't think so. Certainly not here in the Salinas-Monterey DMA.
