Progress on A/105 Underscores Momentum Behind ATSC 2.0

"Candidate Standard" status is a major step toward becoming a "Proposed Standard," and then on to consideration as a full-fledged ATSC Standard.

"Viewers are consuming television content on a variety of devices -- whenever, wherever and however they want it," said ATSC President Mark Richer.
