Recent comments filed with the Federal Communications Commission from New America's Wireless Future Project were quoted in a Communications Daily article discussing the standards for next-generation broadcasting, also known as ATSC 3.0.

Broadcasters “must not be allowed to use ATSC 3.0 as the pretext for a spectrum windfallat public expense that also undermines the long-promised nationwide availability of TV White Spaces,” said CU, PK and New America in a separate joint filing. “Some parties are now seeking to take advantage of this pro­ceeding to expand their spectrum rights unjustifiably, despite” NAB assuring “the FCC that no additional spectrum is required or requested,” said Microsoft.
