The FCC has released new data on NextGen TV deployments as part of a filing for a Third Further Notice on Proposed Rulemaking that will examine the transition to NextGen TV, a.k.a. ATSC 3.0.
“Based on our records, ATSC 3.0 stations have been licensed to operate in 68 markets, though in some cases it may be a single low power television station,” the FCC said. “Furthermore, most markets with 3.0 deployments have a single 3.0 `lighthouse’ facility licensed to provide ATSC 3.0 service. According to S&P Global, Next Gen TV now reaches nearly 66.3 million unique households, or about 51.1% of total U.S. households. “
The FCC noted that at least one full power TV station has been licensed to provide ATSC 3.0 services in 54 DMAs.
