More than 1,100 stations now on-the-air in digital

The NAB has updated its list of stations transmitting a digital signal over the air to include 40 new broadcasters. The current total is now 1,101 operating in 202 markets.

The new list includes WABC, in New York, whose digital signal was knocked off the air on September 11, 2001, when the World Trade Center collapsed. The station is now operating at reduced power from facilities atop the Empire State Building, along with all of the other broadcasters serving the New York market.

It’s now possible to receive a terrestrial digital signal in 99.35 percent of U.S. TV households, the NAB said. More than 80 percent of the 106 million U.S. TV households are in markets with five or more broadcasters airing DTV and 55.83 percent are in markets with eight or more broadcasters transmitting digital signals.
