ATSC 3.0 Comment Deadlines

Posted on April 27th, 2017 by

In February, the FCC released a notice of proposed rulemaking asking for comment on its proposal to authorize television broadcasters to use a “next generation” broadcast television transmission standard (ATSC 3.0) on a voluntary basis, so long as they continue to deliver at least an ATSC 1.0 digital signal to viewers.   Comments are due in this proceeding by May 9, 2017, with reply comments due no later than June 8, 2017. Commenters can submit comments via the FCC’s electronic comment filing system.
