All seven of Richmond-Petersburg’s full power local television stations have begun broadcasting with NextGen TV a.k.a. ATSC 3.0 signals.
The April 11 launch includes WRIC-TV (Nexstar-owned ABC affiliate), WTVR-TV (Scripps-owned CBS affiliate), WWBT (Gray Television-owned NBC affiliate), WRLH-TV (Sinclair-owned Fox affiliate), WCVE-TV and WCVW (VPM Media Corporation-owned PBS), and WUPV (Gray Television-owned CW affiliate).
For the launch, WUPV, owned by Gray Television, and WCVW, owned by VPM Media Corporation, have converted to ATSC 3.0 transmissions. Those stations will broadcast their own programming, as well as the programming of the other participating stations, in NextGen TV format. All the programming of each participating station will continue to be available in the existing DTV format, which all modern television sets can receive.
