W15ER and WJNK-LD Update
- Posted December 18th, 2021 at 10:22pm
I have received word from Joshua Weiss, Co-founder and CEO of ARK Multicasting, Inc., owner of WJNK-LD 34. He said, "We will likely begin in January but the specific install date is up in the air still. When we go live, it will have a free over the air channel which will be religious programming. The actual channel isn’t certain yet, but likely 3ABN. The Internet broadcasting is a bit more difficult to answer. Internet broadcasting itself is not the same as simply providing Internet. It is simply datacasting using a broadcast infrastructure. The data that will be cast will be determine by the customer seeking to cast the data." So, there you have it. It won't be an actual internet service. It will actually be someone or some company wanting to broadcast an update or data to everybody that it is for all at once. Until more news breaks, that's all for now.

Will they have an ATSC 1.0 nightlight like everyone else running 3.0 now or will they be exclusively in 3.0?

It will be interesting to see if the 3.0 TV signal goes further than the 1.0 signal does. I have no desire to see the programming offered. But from a technological level, I am very interested. I assume that datacasting is for smart cars, and the likes that only need one way communication. Similar to pagers in the 90s.
