Long-time ATSC sponsor 21st Century Fox is a supporter of the technology behind ATSC 3.0 and has actively participated as an ATSC member from the very beginning of the Next Gen TV development process. During this process, representatives from the Fox Networks Group Advanced Engineering Team have served in leadership roles in various working groups, while senior 21st Century Fox executive Richard Friedel serves as 2018 Chairman of the ATSC Board of Directors. A significant component of the Fox Networks Group’s business is the delivery of live event productions, and there is great interest in ATSC 3.0’s ability to support live 4K UHD services over an all-IP infrastructure. On the local level, 21st Century Fox’s Television Station Group is the largest owned and operated station group in terms of population served by the number of over-the-air TV channels. The advanced capabilities of the ATSC 3.0 system provide local broadcasters exciting business opportunities to explore new service offerings and more personalized mechanisms to improve the relationship with the audience. www.21cf.com.
