Yes, but this was a network production, wasn't it?
Boston's slowly slipping behind the curve when it comes to local HD. I
now count about a dozen stations around the country (mostly owned by
Gannett and Cox) doing local news in HD. I've heard nothing about any
Boston stations planning to join those ranks.
The only one I've had a chance to see - and that only briefly - is ABC's
KABC-TV in LA. It's absolutely spectacular, and it even looks better on
standard-def, if only because doing HD right requires so much attention
to lighting, set design, graphics and so on.
