ATSC 3.0: Hartford/New Haven, CT

Post by hancox »

WTIC / WCCT announced they are lighting up ATSC3 in October. Figure I would get a placeholder started!

Rob,

I went out and purchased a HD Homerun Flex 4K in preparation. :D I am hoping to catch them testing, but so far I have scanned and no ATSC 3.0 to be found.

I will keep on scanning. If anyone sees any tests let me know! :)

If there's any testing, it won't happen until after they make their NextGen filing with the FCC and only in the middle of the night to avoid disruption to WCCT's OTA and satellite viewers as any testing would involve switching WCCT's RF 33 signal to ATSC 3.0.

It appears that the filing was just posted today for your area, with your CW affiliate being the lighthouse station on RF channel 33 and will be hosting your CBS, ABC, and Fox affiliates. No mention yet of your NBC affiliate. In my particular region (Sacramento, CA) there were stations that filed their applications days to weeks after the initial application but they were all worked out before their live date. In our case, the original "Go Live" date was supposed to have been June 1st of this year but it got delayed a couple of weeks. Your "Go Live" date is October 12 at 12 PM, which sounds like an odd time to go live. It would make more sense to do this in the "dead hours", like 2-3AM. The CW affiliate will be moving their 1.0 content to WTIC, who appears to be your Fox affiliates broadcast. I hope it all goes smoothly in your area.
