It wasn't that long ago that there wasn't any nightly national news broadcast in HD. Then along came NBC Nightly News, then CNN HD, and now PBS' The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. Starting Monday December 17th, the show will be in presented in HD, and SD viewers will see the full frame, letter-boxed. We wish every HD broadcast would go this route, which we feel would motivate everyone to upgrade to HD. The show airs everyday at 7pm in an upgraded studio located in Washington DC, and plans to have 24 hours of the upcoming political conventions coverage in HD.
