ATSC 3.0, also known by the moniker ‘NextGen TV’.
U.S. stations broadcasting in ATSC 3.0
If a United States broadcaster elects to begin transmission of ATSC 3.0, they must also broadcast ATSC 1.0 signals for at least five years thereafter. There is not a mandatory transition or deadline to transition to ATSC 3.0

Here are the features NEXTGEN TV offers
Eventually, you’ll notice exciting new features of NEXTGEN TV. Pearl TV listed the following benefits of the new broadcasting standard:

Brilliant Video: NEXTGEN TV viewers will see 4K UHD HDR video with an ultra-vivid picture, brighter highlights and darker shadows. Highlights are up to 40 times brighter and blacks are 10 times darker than in a standard picture.

Enhanced Audio: NEXTGEN TV provides consistent volume across channels and crystal-clear dialog with Voice+, which allows every voice to be clearly heard. It uses the Dolby Audio System powered by Dolby AC-4. It is available to viewers the moment their NEXTGEN TV is set up.

Connected Content: The internet connection will help viewers get the most out of live sports, news, events and more as they happen.
Upgradable: A NEXTGEN TV purchased today is designed to be upgradable with the advancements of tomorrow. TV manufacturers can upgrade NEXTGEN TV sets connected to the internet with firmware updates just as today’s Smart TV manufacturers can. Those upgrades will accommodate new features to be launched in the future.

Robust Broadcast Signal: NEXTGEN TV will allow broadcasts that are more robust than current over-the-air signals. That means an indoor antenna will work fine for most viewers to pick up a NEXTGEN TV signal.

What is Next Generation TV?
The next generation of broadcast television technology is right around the corner. NEXTGEN TV, also known as ATSC 3.0, offers 4K ultra high definition video quality, theater-like sound, mobile reception and innovative new features to enhance and expand your broadcast viewing experience. NEXTGEN TV lets local TV stations better personalize their broadcasts with information and interactive features so you can get the content and features most relevant to you. For broadcasters, this means a more compelling and interactive way to tell our stories, whether it is breaking news, live sports or your favorite drama or reality show.

Right now, ATSC 3.0 uses the H.265 HEVC codec for video delivery because of its efficiency gains over the much older H.262 MPEG-2 codec used in ATSC 1.0.
ATSC 3.0 isn’t married to a single video format. Over time and through upgrades, it will be able to adopt new codecs like the recently finalized H.266 VVC codec, which is the leading candidate to usher in 8K when that time comes. ... lby-atmos/

Field testing is about to begin in North Carolina on an ATSC 3.0-based alternative to the analog paging systems first responders rely upon to receive dispatches telling them the location of where they are needed and the nature of the emergency at hand.
“Although we are confident that ATSC 3-delivered messages will far outperform the analog [paging] messages, we must prove that in a deliberate and accurate way. We cannot make any assumptions,”“People’s lives are at stake.”
The 3.0-based paging system promises to reduce significantly the time it takes to communicate information to first responders when compared to the system in use today.

There’s nothing simple in adopting ATSC 3.0, where a reasonable, breakeven deployment remains cloudy. But failing to get an early seat on a lighthouse may also prove disastrous later.
There isn’t much of a business case for deploying ATSC 3.0 now. Since it’s IP-based, it is not backward compatible with the current ATSC 1.0 standard. That means the switch requires the purchase of additional equipment along with finding a way to simulcast all programming in ATSC 1.0 for an indefinite period of time. ... ness-case/

Evoca Announces U.S. NextGen TV First.
The demo by Evoca and its tech partners could lead to vast spectrum efficiencies in broadcast TV, potentially doubling effective capacity.

“One of the very interesting capabilities of the new ATSC 3.0 broadcast standard is the ability to use both horizontally-polarized and vertically-polarized transmission and reception, a functionality that the industry calls Multiple Input and Multiple Output, or ‘MIMO’ for short,”
MIMO has the potential to dramatically increase the available payload for TV broadcasts, possibly even doubling the amount of data that a broadcaster can send to improve choice and robustness. That could mean many more standard and high-definition channels for viewers, the potential of more than one Ultra High-Definition 4K service, or even the possibility of 8K video delivered over-the-air,” ... n-tv-first
America’s Emergency Network, LLC to Deploy ATSC 3.0 Advanced Emergency Information, Related Services Nationwide.
Demonstrating delivery of rich-media alerts to battery-powered receivers at NAB Show; AEN Alert works even when cell, power and internet are unavailable
America’s Emergency Network, LLC (AEN) of Washington, D.C. announces an Advanced Emergency Information (AEI) network using ATSC 3.0/NextGen TV. With the introduction of AEN, authorized alert originators such as the National Weather Service, ShakeAlert and local emergency managers will be able to send actionable, geo-targeted rich-media messages even when power, cellular and internet fail.
AEN Alert is a rich-media-capable emergency notification system that rapidly delivers secure, alerts to residents, schools, hospitals, commercial and industrial facilities that could provide timely warning to individuals before a disaster arrives. These alerts will be actionable by providing information such as evacuation routes, flood maps and video snippets from authorized and trusted originators (such as sheriffs and emergency managers). AEN will help save lives and reduce injuries by giving people the information they need to take protective action.
AEN marries ATSC 3.0 to the existing Alert FM ( which uses the Radio Data System in 12 states. (RDS delivers call letters, song and title to car radios.) Alert FM serves an extensive network of local alert originators, which is their current customer base, and distributes through FM radio stations. Alert FM is licensed by USGS to deliver ShakeAlert ( earthquake warnings on the West Coast in five seconds or less. The integrated FM/ATSC 3.0 system will provide multiple redundant backup transmitters connected by satellite to provide secure transmission of a single point-to-multipoint messaging, layered by geo-targeted groupings. ... ationwide/
Verance ATSC 3.0 Watermark Detection, Implemented First On LG NextGen TVs, Poised To Expand Interactive Services.
April 26, 2022
Verance said today that LG Electronics is the first television manufacturer to implement ATSC 3.0 watermark detection on NextGen TVs — expected to enable reception of new interactive experiences via cable, satellite or antenna reception.
This spring, dozens of 2022 and 2021 LG NextGen TV models will receive a firmware update for the Verance Aspect watermark technology. They include premium 8K and 4K Ultra HD LG OLED models ranging from 55-to 97-inch class sizes (measured diagonally).
With watermark capability on LG NextGen TVs, cable networks and regional sports networks are now able to join local TV stations and national networks in planning to bring interactive capabilities to the living room.

As the two-way interactive capabilities of NextGen TV expand to additional households, consumers will enjoy more customized and localized experiences. Interactive opportunities on the horizon include:
• Sports Interactivity: personalized screens for the teams and players that individual viewers care about — track stats in real time and monitor individual fantasy teams.
• Hometown Announcers: change the audio announcer on favorite sports teams — listen to Joe Buck, Peyton Manning or a local announcer.
• Watch Party: connect with friends, chat live while watching together, interact with votes, polls and trivia questions.
• Personalized News & Weather: engage with a personalized news experience customized with news and weather for your local neighborhood.
• Show Extras: access bonus content related to the show you are watching — access extended scenes, actor interviews and post-show recaps at the click of a button.
The Verance Aspect watermark provides a high-performance, commercial implementation of the ATSC A/334 audio watermark standard. LG is the first to launch watermark detection commercially in tandem with major broadcasters deploying the watermark across the United States, bringing enhanced ATSC 3.0 capabilities to 2022 and 2021 LG NextGen TV sets.
The watermark detection process allows the information required for two-way next-generation services in a connected smart TV set to pass through any distribution environment seamlessly, including over HDMI links and through existing distribution equipment and set-top boxes. Without watermarking, viewers receiving television service via cable, satellite and over-the-top distribution paths (over 80% of U.S. households) will be unable to receive ATSC 3.0 interactive services. ... -services/

Digital dongle extends bridge to ATSC 3.0
LAS VEGAS – NAB SHOW – Samsung, LG Electronics and Sony have put their collective weight behind ATSC 3.0 by equipping their TVs with receivers that can capture and utilize the emerging IP-based broadcast TV standard.
But a small company based in Copenhagen believes it has figured out a way to rapidly expand and scale and reach of ATSC 3.0, a standard that the broadcast industry has branded as "NextGen TV."
That company, Mediathand, has developed the Leaf, a hardware dongle powered by media gateway software.
It can be attached to a traditional router to capture IP-based ATSC 3.0 signals and convert them into streams that are compatible with smart TVs, streaming media players, tablets, smartphones and other devices that are not equipped with integrated ATSC 3.0 receivers.
Mediathand's Leaf is modular in that it can support multiple protocols, including ATSC 3.0. The aim is to integrate its technology into routers and to support multiple protocols, including ATSC 3.0, WiMax and DVBT2, in software.
Future target: Router integration
And the Leaf dongle is just the first phase of the plan. Mediathand's broader vision is to have its modular technology, which it bills as a "platform-as-a-service," integrated directly into broadband modems and gateways… if it can convince some of those consumer electronics companies to play ball. ... -id/777076

Such a device would give ATSC 3.0 an opportunity to advance over the next few years as TVs with built-in next-gen tuners become more widely available. (The Pearl TV release also states that “more than 75% of all televisions sold are expected to be available with dual HDTV and NEXTGEN TV reception” by 2024.) ... r-upgrades

How to rescan
Posted: January 12, 2024
KUSI and KSWB are adding an upgraded signal called NEXTGEN TV or ATSC 3.0.
If you use an antenna to watch TV for free, you must rescan your television to continue receiving all channels within the viewing area. Rescanning is when your TV finds all of the available channels in your area. You do not need to purchase new equipment or services to rescan. If you are a cable or satellite subscriber, a rescan is not required.
People with older televisions will need to rescan their TVs on Saturday, Jan. 13 in order to receive KUSI.
Those with newer televisions that can tune the new NextGen signal will need to rescan on Tuesday, Jan. 16.
Viewers with a NEXTGEN TV receiver will get an enhanced viewing experience
