KIMT launches weather radar 3.3

KIMT recently launched channel 3.3, a 24/7 weather radar slideshow. The audio on the channel is from NOAA's Mason City all-hazard station, KXI-68.

This means that Channel 3.2 is now broadcasting MyNet programming full time.

KTTC Goes 5.1, Upgrades encoder?

As of a few weeks ago, KTTC 10.1 began broadcasting in 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound!

Reports have also surfaced that the picture quality is dramatically improved, which indicates the station upgraded their encoder.

Previous to this, KTTC was using an encoder that was over ten years old. The station's picture used to be littered with encoding artifacts, especially on fast motion material such as sports.
