We're supposed to have our local ABC affiliate broadcasting in HD this week, but it's still SD.

We do get NBC nightly news in HD on the local NBC station even though they do not yet do their local news in HD. The NBC studio show is HD, and some of the remote work, but a lot of upconverted news from the field still on NBC Nightly in HD.

They did have people out in the field using HD cameras. Those should be cool during tornado season here.

'course Channel 5 WRAL here was the first to broadcast HD back in the day here in the US... and has had their news in HD for years, long before I got my HDTV even they were doing HD local news... so I wasn't watching during the initial growing pains they probably had.

I know some places currently receive have their local news in HD. I don't believe any national news networks are on yet.
That's incorrect. HD News Network on VOOM has been on national distribution for many years now.

Out of all of them, I'd have to say CBS is the best, followed by NBC and ABC.
None of them broadcast their field shots in HD, they just put 2 big side bars up to fill the holes that have images of the companies logo. At least they don't try to strech or pass it off as HD.
Studio shots are pretty spectacular. You start recognizing features on an achors face that you've never noticed before.
