Gateway City Gains Access to Local NEXTGEN TV


Add St. Louis to the market roster of locales where ATSC 3.0-powered NEXTGEN TV is now available to those who have a television set capable of receiving the next-generation broadcast TV signals.

The September 23 launch includes Sinclair Broadcast Group, Meredith Local Media, TEGNA and two Nexstar Media Group stations.

The launch in St. Louis follows a decade of development and months of planning and preparation by the local stations in the market, with Nexstar-owned KPLR-11 serving as the “lighthouse” for sibling KTVI-2, the FOX affiliate; Sinclair’s ABC affiliated KDNL-30, Meredith’s KMOV-4 and TEGNA’s NBC-affiliated KSDK-5.
