DRM on ATSC 3.0?

Post by wayner »

My understanding is that there is DRM as part of the ATSC 3.0 spec. Do we know yet if stations will be using this and what restrictions this could cause - for example Do Not Record that will allow you to stream live, but not record the content.

Some stations have tested it and the restriction is that you cannot access anything that is DRMed since DRM is not currently supported (as per the Kickstarter). I don't think anyone can give a concrete answer on what if any restrictions might ultimately be used since even the broadcasters themselves don't know what they'll end up doing.
