LAS VEGAS — The FCC will collaborate with an NAB-led leadership group called The Future of Television initiative to work through the “big-picture issues” around the transition to ATSC 3.0, also known as NextGen TV, FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said at the NAB Show in Las Vegas Monday. Rosenworcel also said that she would be introducing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) around ATSC 3.0.
“Today, we are announcing a public-private initiative, led by the National Association of Broadcasters, to help us work through outstanding challenges faced by industry and consumers” Rosenworcel said during a speech Monday. “This Future of Television initiative will gather industry, government, and public interest stakeholders to establish a roadmap for a transition to ATSC 3.0 that serves the public interest. A successful transition will provide for an orderly shift from ATSC 1.0 to ATSC 3.0 and will allow broadcasters to innovate while protecting consumers, especially those most vulnerable.”
