Milwaukee's WISN introduces HD on-screen weather graphic

Darren Murph

It's a pet peeve of anyone who watches any amount of high-definition television: the oh-so-annoying weather caption. Picture this: you and your pals gather 'round the tele to catch an HD sporting event, and on the final play of the second half, your local broadcaster decides to insert a breaking weather scroll to inform you that it's been snowing for four hours now. Traditionally, that insertion forces the game to shift to an SD feed, essentially ruining your viewing experience. Thankfully, the engineers at Milwaukee's WISN have figured out how to slot in an HD-friendly weather bug that keeps viewers up to speed on alerts while keeping their hair follicles safe and frustration levels down. Kudos, WISN.
