Nexstar Media Group’s (NASDAQ: NXST) WTNH-TV (“ABC”), together with three additional Hartford-area channels, launched NEXTGEN TV, a revolutionary new digital broadcast technology based on the same fundamental technology as the internet and digital apps. With this move, Hartford viewers can now find four channels over the air (“OTA”) with NEXTGEN TV. In addition to Nexstar’s WTNH, these include TEGNA Inc.’s (NYSE: TGNA) WCCT-TV (“CW”) and WTIC-TV (“FOX”), as well as Meredith Corporation’s (NYSE: MDP) WFSB-TV (“CBS”). As a free OTA service, viewers watching these channels can look forward to an enhanced television experience provided by NEXTGEN TV as a complement to streaming platforms. NEXTGEN TV delivers higher-quality audio and visual capabilities, as well as enables a range of future internet-based innovations. “NEXTGEN TV will fundamentally change the broadcast industry and make it better,” said Kurt Rao, senior vice president and chief technology officer at TEGNA. “NEXTGEN TV is a thorough upgrade to traditional television, offering 4K resolution, HDR content and better volume and audio consistency across channels.
