I can not find the original Sinclair release but seem to remember what GTB refers to; that Sinclair has a lot of tower room. So much that they seemed to say they could double if not triple from the channels they intend to start with which was around 16-18 per market. Some of this I suspected would be collaboration with other broadcasters in the area. Some may be items normally only found on cable. Then there is the internet interaction. This is about Sinclairs atsc SoC chip introduced at CES...

This article is about the last NAB [national broadcasters assoc.] meeting and the announcement of atsc3.0 roll out. It defines the 40 markets that will get atsc 3.0 by the end of 2020 [shows the top 19]. Also comments from many broadcasters including Sinclair. https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/ ... s-Next-Gen
