WMBD Missing HDTV

A Journal Star reader is upset about the lack of an HD signal for the NCAA tourney.

Thanks to WMBD-TV for allowing basketball fans, Illini fans and HDTV owners to watch the NCAA men's basketball tournament on its great non-HDTV signal. What a shame that CBS is broadcasting these games in perfect HDTV, but central Illinois viewers don't get that experience.
For the first station in Peoria to broadcast in color, and then in stereo, WMBD sure has fallen behind in the 21st century.

Update: It is also being discussed on the PJStar.com message board.
