You're probably right about ATSC 3.0, but of course streaming is slowly being ruined by everyone wanting to run their own service. I am just pointing out the TBD actually has a niche it is filling on the Subchannel market, and may not be garbage programming. Absolute garbage programming is infomercial and shopping networks.
TBD went live on WKBD 50.4 in December, was discussed here at that time.
While I also think TBD is crap, others have different opinions on the matter.
Plenty of data bandwidth on (soon to be) RF 34 for that and whatever else the corporate geniuses make a a deal to acquire.

Out of all the subchannels I get from both Toledo and Detroit markets, the Sinclair offerings is just unwatchable and not interesting.
