Associated Press Switches All Video Content to HD

The Associated Press is rolling out what must undoubtedly be the first major HD entertainment news service. As part of what the news org says is a “multimillion-dollar upgrade,” the AP is switching its entire newsgathering, production and distribution systems to HD.

“Delivering AP Entertainment in HD is a major milestone in AP’s video business upgrade,” AP Global Entertainment Editor Alicia Quarles says in a release. “As the leading supplier of global entertainment news, we recognize the appetite in the entertainment industry for HD content – in today’s information-driven world, it is all about choice and getting the content you want, when, where and how you want it.”

Take that TMZ! Your scoops may be juicy but they’re sure not glossy!

We’re glad South Koreans and their super-fast Internet service will be able to enjoy the AP’s bright, shiny news. The rest of us with our overpriced, halting, stuttering broadband, may not be so lucky.
