BUFFALO, N.Y.—ATSC 3.0, the new TV transmission standard that powers NextGen TV, has been deployed by five local TV stations in Buffalo, N.Y.—WKBW, WUTV, WIVB-TV, WGRZ and WNYO-TV.
WKBW is Buffalo’s ABC affiliate and is owned by E.W. Scripps; WGRZ is an NBC affiliate owned by Tegna; Sinclair owns both WUTV (Fox) and WNYO-TV (MyNet); and WIVB-TV is owned by Nexstar and is the market’s CBS affiliate.
The stations are collaborating to keep current programming available to all viewers, regardless of whether their TV services are over-the-air or by a cable or satellite company. If a viewer uses an antenna, they will need to rescan their TV for full service. No action is required for cable or satellite subscribers.
