"While the TV spectrum repack and an ATSC 3.0 future are two separate matters facing television broadcasters, they are linked in the sense that decisions made today to prepare for the repack will have a significant bearing on the business opportunities available if and when the FCC authorizes OTA transmission using the next-generation standard.

With clarity on reimbursement, broadcasters and tower owners can begin having structural analyses done on existing towers to determine, for example, whether they can safely bear bigger, heavier VHF antennas. (The commission is offering broadcasters a financial incentive to leave the UHF band and move to VHF.)

However, moving to VHF will affect the types of services a broadcaster can successfully offer using the next-gen 3.0 standard."
