I just received the following message from Jay Nix, Director of Engineering at KSHB & KMCI:

Quote

Kansas City is scheduled to launch ATSC 3.0 on Aug 24th. KMCI and Bounce will slide within the transport stream of KSHB. Court Mystery and HSN will be added to the WDAF transport stream. KMCI will then be the ATSC 3.0 station for KSHB, KMCI, WDAF and KCPT. KSMO-62 will be the ATSC 3.0 for KCTV, KSMO, KMBC and KCWE.

It looks like almost every full-power TV station in the Kansas City area, except for KTAJ-TV & KPXE-TV, will be participating in ATSC 3.0 starting on August 24, 2021.

Here is a little bit of an update, including exactly where exactly where the ATSC 1.0 broadcasts of KMCI & KSMO are moving to, about the launch of ATSC 3.0 in the Kansas City area on August 24, 2021. According to KyL416 on the AVS Forum & Jay Nix, Director of Engineering at KSHB-TV & KMCI-TV, the following will be available in ATSC 3.0:
KMCI (RF 25):
4-1 WDAF (FOX)
19-1 KCPT (PBS)

KSMO (RF 32):
5-1 KCTV (CBS)
9-1 KMBC (ABC)
29-1 KCWE (CW)
62-1 KSMO (MyNet)

These will be the locations of KSMO's ATSC 1.0 simulcasts:
62.1 MyNetworkTV will be on KCTV's RF 24 signal

62.3 DABL will be on KMBC's RF 29 signal

Los Angeles became the largest TV market to air an ATSC 3 signal. 

 

KTTV (RF 11) is the host station, carrying Fox 11, KCOP 13 & KTLA 5 main channels.

 

KTTV's ATSC1 simulcast is on KTLA's RF 35 stick, while the subchannels (11.2-4) are on KCOP's RF 13 stick.

A necessary bump to this thread:

 

People on AVSForum are reporting that both 5.1 and 11.1 on KTLA's signal now looks terrible, to the extent that one viewer complained on Twitter. In addition, 5.1 has been downgraded to 720p. If you're in the LA market and watch Fox/The CW over-the-air, upgrade now.

West Palm Beach is getting ATSC 3.0 on March 8th. Don't really have that much info apart from the host being WWHB Azteca 48 which is kind of surprising for me.

 

WWHB Azteca 48 already has a translator on WTVX 34.2

Finally. Maybe, it'll be worth it to get a ATSC 3.0 tuner if one of those signals can reach Miami (WWHB won't but maybe some other station) instead of settling for one channel ūü§Ē

What setup do you guys use for the ATSC 3.0 audio? I have an HDHomeRun 4k but it looks like Plex and even VLC are missing the codec. 

 

It looks like channels is able to decode it, but I don't really want to pay a subscription service for it when it's not doing anything particularly well for me other than the ATSC audio.

Nextpvr can playback those channels. Just need to grab the plugin for that
