After over 15 years of meaningful negotiations for retransmission consent agreements for broadcast clients, 2022 represented a new direction in emphasis to monetizing ATSC 3.0.  ATV has embraced this technical development and has brought test case scenarios in concert with 3.0 capable stations.  ATV also uses its expertise and contacts to challenge broadcasters and it’s distributors to find positive synergy together well beyond retransmission consent.
