Broadcasters in 40 Largest U.S. TV Markets to Roll Out "Next-Gen TV" by 2021

Following years of development, the U.S.' "Next-Gen TV" broadcasting standard will start to roll out in the 40 largest TV markets by the end of 2020, a coalition of broadcast TV station groups announced Monday at the NAB Show in Las Vegas.

With deployment, the optional capabilities of this new standard which include the ability to get an over-the-air TV signal on a cellphone without using a cellular service or data plans, as well as 4K, HDR and an emergency warning system could be available on supported TV receivers, connected cars or mobile consumer devices including cellphones and tablets. As it is a voluntary system, each broadcaster would decide which capabilities of the new system it would offer to consumers.

I guess just incase there's a big game on and you're nowhere near a TV.

There probably will be a monthly charge for the service, too? Not a free app to use? DANG!

Young people, especially teenagers, do it all the time. They may have neck problems later, but don't realize it.

My fear is that we will be fed pseudo 8K material, as much of the current 4K material is 'stepped-up' 1080 material and not true 4K production.

ATSC 3.0 has no 8K capabilities. 4K is max.

4K content production is on a much slower "road" then 4KTVs. Less than 20% of all USA households have a 4KTV. The other 80+% are mostly HDTVs.

Changing a production from HD to UHD is costly. Why spend the money if less than 20% of your audience can take advantage of the higher resolution?

Then you have the fractured HDR marketplace. There are just too many contenders. This is holding HDR advancement back.

I looked for 4K movie content on Netflix a couple weeks ago, via their website, and the selection was very limited. So, why pay for their 4K upgrade content? I imagine it is the same with other streamers.

I don't see any TV SPECS with 4K UHD upscaling from 1080i cable, input either. Are the 4K UHD mfgs even mentioning it any more.

My Denon AVR does up upscale the incoming 1080i transmission from ATT, to a certain visible extent. If I had spent $200.00 more on the Denon AVR, their upscaling spec, would have been higher. But, who knows if my 4K, TV would accept it? There is no 4K upscaling spec for my TV. lol

I wonder if an OLED TV fed std 1080i, has a better detailed picture than a regular HD or 4K UHD TV? Our other 50" TV is the regular HD model and has a really nice picture. I am one that uses the regular TV picture controls, to attain the picture quality I want for 1080i movies, which will also be the same for regular TV programing.

I don't think we will see regular cable 4K content/programing, for many moons. As previously mentioned by another poster, EXPENSE to upgrade equipment for the few????
Sorry, off Topic.
