Expect to see even more HDTV content coming from PBS due to their new program in conjunction with Sony, three of their stations (Chicago, Pittsburgh & Washington) have moved forward with installing Sony high definition cameras, switches, displays etc.

One of the first beneficiaries of this is The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, set to become PBS' first daily high definition show sometime in 2007 when upgrades in Washington are completed. The Chicago station that produced the Legends of Jazz series we recently mentioned is building a brand new educational facility where area residents will be able to learn television production on the new equipment. The Pittsburgh station is hoping to make more HD movies like their recent The War That Made America, now that they don't have to rent space and equipment to do it.
