Tablo ATSC 3.0 Plans 2021

Somethings I am an “early adopter”, and others I hold off on. I was one of the first to run Media Center PCs back in the early 2000’s (I think it was 2002 or 2003). Couldn’t even get HD at the time…:smiley:

I finally upgraded to HD in 2012 - the price of HD equipment plus the lack of HD programming didn’t make it worthwhile.

All that being said, until they have reasonable priced equipment AND the ATSC 3.0 channels (more specifically, something I don’t have now), I probably won’t invest day one. Especially when you have to consider the initial tuners and stations may have difficulties…Not really in the mood to pay a premium and be a beta tester.

KEYE is going to be the first in the Austin market - they have already delayed twice (August, then September, now October), and they are still tight lipped about what the plans are with the ATSC 3.0. They have CBS and TeleMundo (or is it Univision? I don’t watch either), and since CBS has very little 4K content, and no channels announced, and CBS has the best reception of all my channels - there is absolutely no reason to update.

Time will tell…It may be 2023-2025 before I adopt ATSC 3.0…Remember - Silicon Dust doesn’t have a “working model” on the market (they are developer’s editions - and still haven’t shipped last I read).
