skbl17 188 Posted August 22, 2019 Share Posted August 22, 2019 (edited) With television manufacturers and station groups starting the switch to ATSC 3.0 ("Next Gen TV",) the newest version of the U.S.'s digital television standard, I thought it would be prudent to start a thread about which stations have rolled out ATSC 3.0 transmissions. This thread is similar to the old HD News Thread from back in the day. The switch to ATSC 3.0 in the United States is voluntary. Unlike the analog-to-digital switchover (and more like the HD switch,) the switch to ATSC 3.0 is intended by both manufacturers and regulators to be more market-driven. As a result, there will be no mandate for new TV sets to include ATSC 3.0 tuners and no subsidy program for ATSC 3.0 equipment (like the converter box coupons from the ATSC 1.0 switch) will exist. Notably, ATSC 3.0 signals are not subject to the same must-carry rules for pay TV providers as ATSC 1.0 signals. I'll try to keep this post as up-to-date as possible, so feel free to reply with any updates or suggestions! ---- Markets that have active or experimental ATSC 3.0 stations This list also includes stations that are undertaking trial broadcasts. Raleigh-Durham: WRAL Phoenix: KFPH-CD, KASW Dallas: KSTR, KTXD Las Vegas: KSNV, KVCW, KLAS, KTNV Nashville: WTVF, WKRN, WZTV, WUXP, WNAB Orlando: WRCF-CD Pittsburgh: WPGH, WTAE, WPNT Portland: KPDX, KPTV, KATU, KGW, KOPB, KOIN, KRCW Santa Barbara: KSBB-CD Salt Lake City: KUTV, KJZZ, KTVX, KUCW Austin: KXAN, KBVO, KNVA, KEYE Oklahoma City: KOCO, KFOR, KAUT, KOKH, KOCB Washington: WJLA and WTTG are planning to run an 8-week trial of ATSC 3.0 - no start date announced yet Station groups that have announced ATSC 3.0 deployment plans Some of these groups are acting in concert with other groups to launch ATSC 3.0 services.
