All Richmond-Petersburg’s full-power local television stations now broadcasting with NextGen TV

by | Apr 11, 2022

All seven of Richmond-Petersburg’s full-power local television stations are broadcasting with NextGen TV a.k.a. ATSC 3.0 signals.

The stations include WRIC-TV (Nexstar-owned ABC affiliate), WTVR-TV (Scripps-owned CBS affiliate), WWBT (Gray Television-owned NBC affiliate), WRLH-TV (Sinclair-owned Fox affiliate), WCVE-TV and WCVW (VPM Media Corporation-owned PBS) and WUPV (Gray Television-owned CW affiliate).

For the launch, WUPV, owned by Gray Television, and WCVW, owned by VPM Media Corporation, have converted to ATSC 3.0 transmissions. Those stations will broadcast their own programming, as well as the programming of the other participating stations, in NextGen TV format. All the programming of each participating station will continue to be available in the existing DTV format, which all modern television sets can receive.

This deployment marks the 49th market to launch ATSC 3.0 in the U.S. Approximately 45% of U.S. TV households are within range of receiving ATSC 3.0 with that percentage expected to grow to 75% by the end of 2022, according to the ATSC.
