Yes, if they are waiting for that we won't see it until sometime next year, maybe even not until H1 2020. AFAIK there are no ATSC 3.0 tuners in mass production yet since the standard isn't quite finalized (though it is close) Even if they only release a 1.0 tuner now they probably want to have the OTA database ready for it. I don't think it was an accident that among the first four markets were Dallas (AT&T's HQ) and Los Angeles (Directv's HQ) because it seems that AT&T likes to test things with their employees first. I wouldn't be surprised if they have some sort of employee presence in the other two markets, Las Vegas and SLC, maybe call centers or something? While employees are testing in home markets, they can get the remaining markets ready so that when they begin to offer them to customers they will be able to pick up all the channels in their market and not have to deal with the hassles AM21 owners had to endure. If they can sustain 15 markets a week it will only take three months, but it seems like a lot of these projects go for a while and then inexplicably stall so who knows. Like whatever happened to the project that was tagging HD/SD stations in in the various DMAs, they finished like half of them and then that seemed to stall months ago for whatever reason. I wonder if there will be any provision for an OTA dongle for customers of the IP version that's coming "at the end of the year"? They'd have to make it able to connect to the USB port of a client, I guess?
