Next Gen TV Rule Changes Proposed

Posted on November 30th, 2021 by

In response to a petition filed by NAB, the FCC has launched a proposed rulemaking to change certain of its Next Gen TV rules to ensure that viewers have access to the widest possible range of over-the-air programming while TV stations voluntarily transition to the ATSC 3.0 standard.

The proposal would allow Next Gen TV stations to include within their license certain of their non-primary video programming streams that are airing in a different service on “host” ATSC 1.0 stations.  Comments can be filed now in the FCC’s electronic comment filing system.
