Scott Wilkinson ... Reclaimed

Episode 1713

Scott joins Leo to talk about over the air television and concerns that the FCC will reclaim those broadcast frequencies, preventing people from watching TV with a conventional digital antenna. ATSC 1.0 is the standard that most people are watching on, and there is a new generation called ATSC 3.0 that we are transitioning to. As a result, the FCC is reclaiming that ATSC 1.0 spectrum to reallocate frequencies to another spectrum. As such, local broadcast stations have had to be rescanned by TVs in order to get the channel back.
