HDTV comes to Rhode Island!

Kevin C. Tofel

Welcome to the party, Providence! Aside from having a hit show based around your city, we hear you've got HDTV through local CBS-affiliate, WPRI. In fact, WPRI is the first station in the state to offer HDTV, so we consider you trail-blazers in Rhode Island.

Amazingly, it turns out that local cable carriers in Providence don't provide any digital television signals, so folks there will need to view DTV via over-the-air signals. If you're in the Providence area, look to our HDTV antenna helper that we posted a few weeks back.

If your local stations are moving to a DTV signal, be sure to let us know!
