If this happens it wouldn't be a pretty picture!

It looks like there will not be any ATSC 3.0 products from SiliconDust this year.
From their forum:
We're keeping an eye on things. Right now I believe the count is at 4 stations on air in the entire country, and only one of them is carrying something that isn't just a simulcast of programming that is already available on a traditional ATSC broadcast. There's been some talk of other stations that are planning to go on air, but talk is cheap, and equipment upgrades are not, so we'll see how many actually do it.

Nothing from Tablo either:
Nuvyyo says they will continue to make their current line of DVRs but are looking into a device that would support both the current over-the-air TV standard and the next-gen ATSC 3.0 standard. Nuvyyo even went as far as to hint that they may have something to show off at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2021.

TiVo has shown some proof of concept products, but it does not look like they will have anything for 2020 either.

Even if ATSC 3.0 devices were readily available, what would you watch with it that you cannot get using ATSC 1.0? Unless something changes pretty quick, ATSC 3.0 for 2020 will not be much different than ATSC 3.0 in 2019.

The ITU recommended ATSC 3.0 as one of the ITU recommended standards, not the only one. It doesn't mean that it will be used everywhere. DVB-T2 is already a recommended standard, and it is expected that DVB-I will also become a recommended standard. So, it is not really that big of a deal, and doesn't force anyone to use it.



Plus, I can tell you I certainly don't see many, if any, stations in Canada adopting ATSC 3.0. It was bad enough trying to get channels to switch to ATSC 1.0, with the loss of many network stations along the way (where I live we lost two, including our CBC station, as well as signal loss of semi-distant channels. With the same antenna, I used to get around ten channels, now I get five).

Due to the CRTC rules, there are few, if any, sub-channels in all of Canada (last I heard there may be two), so certainly see no benefit for any channel to switch to ATSC 3.0.

The article in the link you posted was dated January 2, 2020. This was before CES, and before the 20 Next Gen televisions were announced. Sort of like a firecracker that fizzled.

Buy one of those new 8K ATSC 1.0/3.0 televisions and tell us how cheap they are.  Which one(s) out of the 20 television models will be priced at less than $1,000.00 U.S.? Which models out of the 20 are not Top of the Line?

Something else for ATSC 3.0 will probably be demonstrated at the NAB Show, April 18-22, 2020 in Las Vegas‎. Maybe Manhattan will reveal the 4 ATSC 1.0/3.0 models they are supposed to produce this year at NAB? We will see...

ATSC 3.0 Tuner Article... We should see them anytime now.


  Also just in the last month, ATSC 3.0 as a worldwide standard. Something some said would never happen. Things are changing.  Chances are we will see the new TV and Tuners after the yearly Super Bowel Sale the stores have every year on TV sets. New TV sets are released in March every year. Six more weeks. That said, the makers have announced 20 models will have the new tuner this year. There is not 20 models that are considered Top of the Line. So that leads me to believe that every budget, (Or almost every budget), should be able to afford one. Seeing how prices have dropped on TV sets, It only stands to reason that the new tuner models will simply be considered "Normal" pricing. JMHO.

My guess is they will encrypt some channels to recover costs, and then have added profit after cost recovery. Currently only One channel has to be unencrypted.

A lot more has been said so far than is been done in the ATSC 3.0 area, and it looks like this will continue for 2020. Sinclair said at 2019 CES that 26 markets would have ATSC 3.0 before the end of 2019. I think they ended up with less than a handful of ATSC 3.0 stations instead, with some of them in test mode. Sinclair talked a good game in 2019, but accomplished next to nothing.


I have seen some products for ATSC 3.0 that do not exist yet, so no change in that area from 2019 either. An ATSC 1.0/3.0 tablet is shown in the link. The price for it that is shown does not matter because the tablet is not available.

It will not be long before 1/6th of 2020 is in the history books.

It is foolish for companies to announce or advertise things they do not have.
