WSOC ABC is now the first TV station in the greater Charlotte area to broadcast their news in spectacular HD. Their signal went live yesterday for the 6:00 news - just in time for the stations 50th anniversary. The station is shooting for 35 hours a week of HD that should be easy to accomplish considering the news is on seven times a day. Local HD news is one of the best programs currently in HD. There is nothing better then seeing the highs, and the lows, of your town in high definition.
