Senators Ask FCC to Take an Active Role in Next Gen TV

To help with the rollout of Next Gen TV, a number of U.S. Senators have sent a letter to FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel asking the FCC to take a stronger leadership role in Next Gen TV. The letter stated in part:

"The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) should take an active role in expediting the continued rollout of the Next Generation Television standard, or ATSC 3.0. The Next Gen TV standard is essential to the continued vitality and competitiveness of local television. broadcasters’ free, local, and trusted service in our communities. This pro-consumer, innovative technology will allow local stations to better serve their viewers with improved pictures and sound, interactive features, including expanded local news, advanced emergency alerting, and the ability to deliver to viewers the content that is most relevant to them, when they want it, where they want it."
