            The FCC today released a draft of a rulemaking aimed at giving TV stations the option of broadcasting with new ATSC 3.0 standard that promises a host of new services and enhancements.  The FCC is expected to launch the rulemaking at its Feb. 23 meeting.

The draft rulemaking also seeks comments on:
  • Concerns of MVPDs that broadcasters may force them to carry 3.0 signals by leveraging their retransmission consent rights.
  • Possible interference 3.0 signals might cause to 1.0 signals and other services that operate in adjacent bands.
  • The FCC's "tentative conclusion" that is it unnecessary to mandate 3.0 tuners in new TV receivers.
  • Whether broadcasters should be required to provide on-air notifications to educate consumers about the transition to 3.0.
  • How to ensure that deployment of 3.0 will "not negatively impact the post-incentive auction transition process."
