NetGen TV is continuing to expand across the country. ATSC 3.0 has gone live in Oklahoma City, just after launching in Austin, Texas.
The five stations broadcasting NextGen TV in Oklahoma City include
Hearst’s KOCO-TV (ABC), Nexstar Media Group’s KFOR-TV (NBC) and KAUT-TV (IND); and
Sinclair’s KOKH-TV (Fox) and KOCB-TV (CW).
“Oklahoma City marks the seventh launch of ATSC 3.0 for
BitPath this year and our second launch on the important I-35 corridor,” said
Bitpath President John Hane. “We congratulate Nexstar, Sinclair and Hearst on
their tireless efforts to keep the rollout of ATSC 3.0 on track in this
challenging year. Four of the stations launching today—KFOR-TV, KOKH-TV, KOCB and
KAUT—will be charter members of BitPath’s broadcast data network. These leading
stations will bring new coverage to BitPath’s network and exciting new wireless
data broadcasting services to Oklahoma City.”
“Today’s roll-out continues the momentum established during
the last several months and is a clear demonstration that the deployment
process is getting more and more efficient,” said Brett Jenkins, executive vice president and
CTO for Nexstar Media Group.
