Channel 5's HDTV Outage
Channel 5's HDTV receiver broke down Saturday, which is why football fans didn't see NBC's prime-time Patriots-Eagles game in HD.
Here's an update this morning from Richard Dyer, WLWT-TV president and general manager:
"We experienced a major failure of our NBC High Definition receiver on Saturday and were unable to secure a replacement from the network in time for last night's Sunday Night Football broadcast. We apologize for the game being available only in standard definition and are efforting to resolve the problem ASAP.
"Rest assured that next Sunday night's Bengals vs Steelers game on NBC will be available on WLWT-HD. We look forward to resuming our full menu of HD programming very shortly." Sincerely, Richard Dyer
