At CES 2020, NexGen TV sets that can receive ATSC 3.0 signals were introduced by many of the world’s largest consumer electronics companies, including Samsung, LG, and Sony. While this is a huge boost for NexGen TV, it will take time before most US households own one of these new TV sets. Luckily, CES 2020 also saw demos of ATSC 3.0 home gateways that can deliver many NextGen TV services to standard TV sets, bridging the gap until new TV sets are purchased.
One advantage NextGen TV has over current US TV that is that it can be received on mobile devices. This was demonstrated in the Saankhya Labs suite, where a standard tablet received live mobile TV using a DigiCAP Home Gateway device with a Saankhya Labs ATSC 3.0 dongle.
