HD around the corner at Fox4?

Mum's the word, literally, as Fox4 experiments with soundless widescreen telecasts on its local HD channel (804 on Verizon Fios). Thursday's 9 and 10 p.m. newscasts both got the silent treatment but the pictures looked sharper.

Fox4 is D-FW's only major local newscast provider without HD capabilities. Belo8 trail-blazed last February, with NBC5 and CBS11 going high-def. in September. The Peacock's local field reports aren't in HD, though. So in reality, they're still only halfway there.

Asked in early October about her station's HD plans Fox4 vice president and general manager Kathy Saunders told unclebarky.com, "When we do it, we'll do it right."

Presumably they'll promote the big makeover before it actually happens. But so far, nothing.
