Five Stations Launch NextGen TV In Fresno-Visalia

KGPE, KMPH, KSEE, KNSO and KFRE are now broadcasting with ATSC 3.0 technology.

Five television stations serving the Fresno-Visalia, Calif., market (DMA 55) today began broadcasting with NextGen TV, also known as ATSC 3.0.

Switching on the new transmission standard are Nexstar Media’s KGPE (CBS) and KSEE (NBC), Sinclair Broadcast Group’s KMPH (Fox) and KFRE (CW) and Telemundo’s KNSO.

Today’s launch in Fresno-Visalia follows a decade of development and months of planning and preparation by the local stations. KFRE, which is owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group, has converted to ATSC 3.0 transmissions and will broadcast its own programming, as well as the programming of the other participating stations, in the NextGen TV format.

All programming of all participating stations will continue to be available in the existing DTV format, which can be received on all modern television sets.

BitPath, which is developing new data broadcasting services, led the planning process and coordinated efforts across the five television stations.
