Cleveland becomes first US city with three HD news channels

Darren Murph

While New York may have claimed fame for being the first city to snatch an HD news broadcast and beam IPTV content OTA and over cable, it looks like Cleveland, Ohio now has its own boasting to do, as it becomes the first American city to tout three local HD news channels. One particular channel, NewsChannel5, also provides exclusive HD weather and offers up "more than 12 hours of HD programming each day." The station commented that its HD weather capabilities now open up new views of on-scene reports, wider views of radar screens, and can simply keep viewers safer as they see more of what's going on around them. So as you lucky Clevelanders are waking up this morning, just know that you've got more choices than anyone else when it comes to catching the news tonight in crisp HD.
