I thought Channel 9 was upgrading to HD on their newscast. I get my signal straight off of the airwaves with an antenna which should have the clearest signal. It is a higher resolution than Comcast or EPB, for sure. Channel 9 newscast is just so grainy I change to another channel. Even though they all seem to "soften" the image to cover up blemishes in the anchors complexion, none seem as bad as channel 9. I like channel 9 other than this.
