Yes I understand your POV. This will be huge for the automotive industry. As well as most/any mobile related device. On one hand I [email protected]
@k forward to this coming technology. Some of the improvements are welcomed. Who doesn’t want better or potentially more stable reception under some/certain conditions, potentially more channels and a further increase in picture quality. Just with the increased resolution from blurays and UHD disks that have been scanned at much higher resolutions. That were not available when 1080P arrived. IMHO, I am experiencing a notable upgrade in picture quality with both my 1080i and 1080P TV sets. There being feed a VERY high quality signal from recent bluray and UHD disks.
One potential advancement with this technology is the ability to turn on your TV and devices to alert you 24/7 during severe weather events. Which I believe will save lives. Myself I have a weather alert radio in my bedroom. As well as my cell phone apps set to track and alert of severe weather conditions. Unfortunately there is allot of people that don’t.
On the other hand It’s opening a huge door into pandora’s box with the potential advertising $$$$$$$. As well as location based advertising. That is driving this technology IMHO. I understand it is necessary for the bu$ine$$ model. I have certainly benefited from it. As in FREE OTA TV channels. This will certainly open the doors to vehicles and mobile devices while traveling down the road. Imagine advertising a commercial for a big mac. To your backseat passengers. Exclaiming to take the next exit and turn left into McDonalds drive thru lane..
For ME, too much advertising intensity can be a bad thing. This was one of the reasons I canceled cable TV. I Was no longer able to enjoy a movie/TV show with an advertising cyclic rate of 6-8 mins of the movie and then 6-8+ mins of ads. That doesn’t even include all the uninvited little people and creatures not related to the movie. Walking across my screenscape advertising a future TV show/episode to further distract ME and consuming my attention.
Will be interesting to see ATSC 3.0 come together.
That’s my 3 1/2 cents. Thank you DrDon for taking the time to enlighten me further. Take care......
