Here is a link to an article on the ATSC 3.0 standard for anyone interested. I thought it was a good read.

Maybe they will take enough time that I won't be around to have to contend with new tvs, etc.  So much for backward compatibility. It was required when they added stereo to FM, it still had to be able to be received on a mono FM receiver. Yes, i'm telling my age, but I'm not ashamed of my age. But at the old song says; "It's not the age on this old frame, it's the mileage that is slowing me down."  lol   E_V

Strange, but I agree with both of you.  Yes El Viejo; the "new" color signals had to be able to be seen on a B/W Tv.  I also know that most things made now are NOT ment to last very long, otherwise we would only buy them once!  I still have a few "OLD" things that still work pretty well, including myself.  Jess out in California

jimlw1, my son that passed about 8 years ago always said when he talked about lawyers, etc, 'it's all about the money!' I get ur point.  Jess, I didn't think of the color tv part of it, but that was the case.  If u will remember the government subsidized the digital converters for those that wanted them. Then our esteemed leader kept wanting to delay the changeover.   oh well, get off my soapbox, lol    E_V

You're not old Jess, and we all know you work well, from reading what you've posted.

I love my Raydx 10.5-footer. It brings in 16APSK feeds quite well! Titanium C1 PLL LNBF & GEOSATpro SL1PLL Ku LNBF to a FreeSat GTC 4K receiver!

Was just reading more on some of the "good" possibilities  of this upcoming ATSC 3.0 on the   .com link of     cutcabletoday . Been concerned since Hyper first brought this to my attention months ago . They point out that the transition will be quite different than the analog to hd we experienced a few years ago .    But also mention how a small indoor antenna might receive stations 60 miles away and abilities to watch on our phones data free , if  the cellphone manufacturers get on board .     The analog to hd worked out better than I thought , maybe this might have hope .

Some of those rumors are true. For the antennas to receive, yes this system will be better, but not the 60 mile out with a rabbit ears is not going to happen. But urban areas will be good to go!

We will have ATSC 3.0 tuner in June and hopefully July delivery of such products.

Stay tuned.

An update about support for ATSC 3.0. This is part of an article being written for a trade magazine.

Manhattan-Digital in Wisconsin hopes to specialize in multimedia set top boxes, with plans for a dual ATSC 1.0/3.0 device to be available this coming fall (2018), at a very competitive price.  The reality of the ATSC 3.0 situation is that there are ZERO reception devices in the homes of Americans as of this writing. Assuming a rough number of 2.5 to 3.0 televisions per household in this country, the potential exists for the need to have between 250 and 300 million ATSC 3.0 reception devices in order to receive this new programming standard.

People will NOT spend money to replace every television set, and the only practical way for most households to participate in continued free over-the-air reception is with a set-top box capable of the new 3.0 standard, as well as the old ATSC 1.0 system. Existing and planned televisions are woefully lacking in abilities such as program storage (think DVR and TIVO-like devices). This is much more easily accomplished with a reasonably priced set-top box.

Multiple set-top configurations could cost effectively allow a mix of subscription and free TV, delivered by local VHF and UHF television frequencies, direct internet, and satellite reception. Estimates as high as 55 million have been thrown about for the numbers of sets and converters presently antenna-equipped for local reception.

Intelligent rollout of ATSC 3.0 could spur further interest in local TV antennas, possibly reviving that industry.
