Imagine having free, on-demand access to news, sports and your favorite music and shows. Thanks to broadcasters, you already do.
Today, with just an antenna, Americans can get free, over the air broadcasts of a diverse set of programs, ranging from your favorite new artist to the Super Bowl to all your top network TV - NBC’s This is Us, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, CBS’s 60 Minutes and FOX’s Empire. The same antenna gives them access to local and national news, as well as emergency weather alerts, helping everyone to stay safe during deadly storms and intense wildfires.
Looking to the future, broadcasters are adapting new technologies that will further enhance the picture and sound quality of their valued content. And just like today, tomorrow’s technology will come with absolutely no cost to consumers.
More than 2.42 million American jobs depend on broadcasting, and the local broadcast radio and television industry - and the businesses that depend on it - generate $1.18 trillion annually for the nation's economy.
