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.
