Five stations in Omaha have announced that they’ve begun offering viewers NextGen TV (aka ATSC 3.0) broadcasts.
The April 19 launch includes KETV (the Hearst-owned ABC affiliate), KMTV-TV (the Scripps-owned CBS affiliate), WOWT (the Gray Television-owned NBC affiliate), KPTM (the Sinclair-owned Fox affiliate), and KXVO (the Mills Telecasting TBD affiliate).
In the run-up to the launch, KXVO, owned by Mitts Telecasting, converted to ATSC 3.0 transmissions. KXVO is now broadcasting its 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.
