ATSC 3.0 News - WTVF

- Posted June 3rd, 2020 at 7:15pm
This may not be of any importance to anyone, because no one right now has access to the coming 3.0, but WTVF has now revealed that they will be showing their 3.0 signal on WUXP's 3.0 signal with WZTV. Now, I don't know if their subchannels will be showing on the 3.0 signal as well, but if they do, that is one loaded channel, and yes, I know that 3.0 has a lot more room than 1.0. Until more news breaks, that's all for now.

when 3.0 is started thru all channels, will it affect my tv? I just bought 3 new tv's, I don't want to buy 3 more in just a few years for the 3.0.

Well, I'm sorry to say yes because 3.0 is not backwards compatible with 1.0, but it probably won't be for another five years because the FCC wants TV stations to still broadcast 1.0 format for at least five years from when they started broadcasting 3.0. I hope I have answered your question.

if my 1.0 tv is still working in 5 years could I get a box of some kind to help it receive 3.0? thanks for your help

That's my plan. I have a Vizio "TV". It did not include a receiver so it is basically a big monitor. I have a separate 1.0 receiver for it. Unless my Vizio breaks, I don't plan on getting a new TV anytime soon and may go with a 3.0 receiver.

Pretty much yes. Right now, there is not that many 3.0 receivers whether built-in TVs or converter boxes, but in about five years, when 1.0 is on its way out, there will be probably an enormous supply of TVs with 3.0 built-in tuners and converter boxes and/or HDMI tuner dongles you can add to your current TV. If you have any more questions, I will try and answer as best as I can.
