73 Stations Now Transmit Mobile DTV
MobileViewingWASHINGTON: According to the signal map of the Open Mobile Video Coalition, 73 TV stations in 33 markets across the country are now transmitting mobile DTV signals. Compared to a month ago, the figures represent a net gain of 21 stations said to now be sending out signals in ATSC M/H, the over-the-air mobile digital television transmission standard.

Six more markets added signals, and another 18 joined the list of 46 cities with stations planning Mobile DTV launches yet this year. Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles are now tied for the most stations transmitting ATSC M/H, with six each. Seven stations were listed for Washington last month, but WVNC-TV, the MHz affiliate in the district, is no longer on the list. Four other stations previously listed as actively transmitting signals are now either planning launches or testing signals.


Should all stations in all markets now planning launches complete them by year end, 151 TV stations in 79 markets will have mobile DTV signals by 2012.


The new additions appear in
red.
