Five stations serving the Louisville, Ky., television market today began broadcasting with NextGen TV, also known as ATSC 3.0.
Switching on the new transmission standard are Block Communications’ WBKI (CW) and WDRB (Fox), Gray Television’s WAVE (NBC), Tegna’s WHAS (ABC) and Word Broadcasting Network’s WBNA (independent). Kentucky Educational Television’s WKMJ will launch on Sept. 19.
Today’s launch in Louisville follows a decade of development and months of planning and preparation by the local stations. WBKI has converted to ATSC 3.0 transmissions and will broadcast its own programming, as well as the programming of the other participating stations, in NextGen TV format.
