According to a news story/press release published on MSNBC, the Birmingham, AL NBC affiliate will be the first station in the state of Alabama to broadcast their local news coverage in high definition. The transmissions will begin on October 17 with their 10 p.m. broadcast.

All of the major stations carry their local news on their HD signals, but NBC 13 would be the first to actually take advantage of the technology. The changes will coincide with a new set designed to take advantage of the new technology.

While we’re at it we appreciate MSNBC listing us under their local blogs heading on their redesigned local page for Birmingham.

I just wish Charter would carry more HD content. Kudos to NBC13 on the HD broadcast though. That rocks.
