First off, it wasn't without its technical glitches - which we think will be fixed for tonight's 5 PM newscast in 35 minutes. Sometimes the picture broke up - but that's to be expected for the first broadcast. There weren't audio troubles which is good.
As for the look of the graphics... we like them - no wait, we LOVE them. They're sharper, clearer, and easier to see even on a Standard Definition television. Again - highly impressive.
The weather graphics they are now using (and we don't know the source, whether those are done in-house or are a package sent from somewhere else) are extremely well done as well. For a weather geek like yours truly, we imagine those are fun for the PD12 Weather team to play with.
Finally, we didn't get to see a newscast open last night - they went straight to a breaking news alert. We still wonder if they changed that at all. I guess we will see during the 5:00 news tonight...
