Our Features

Standards based

Having a standard to live by is important. The all new ATSC 3.0 broadcast television standard was adopted by the FCC on November 17, 2017.

End-to-End

Most content platforms struggle with unreliable middlemen. We control the experience all the way to the user.

Nationwide

We cover the map from coast to coast with ~300 TV stations and construction permits. This equates to over 100MM pops or 33% of United States.

Wireless

Unlike legacy broadband delivery such as cable, we are completely wireless minimizing CapEx and speeding up new roll-outs.

Internet protocol (IP based)

We are IP-based delivery allowing the same IP-based analytics that benefit Google and Facebook.

Multicast

Unlike the current broken architecture, we are multicast meaning we deliver data to many people one time rather then delivering to each person one-at-a-time.

The Broadcast Spectrum

ARK has an unparalleled nationwide footprint of ~300 exclusive Low Power TV (“LPTV”) FCC spectrum licenses, covering over 100+ MM people in the U.S. and affiliate relationships doubling that reach to ~66% of the US

ARK’s business strategy is to capitalize on one of the most significant spectrum arbitrage opportunities of the 5G revolution: upgrading our ~300 LPTV stations to IP Datacasting facilities which will then provide the most efficient method to get data to end users.

ARK’s nationwide network is creating a last mile edge network caching home data centers with popular data congesting traditional unicast networks
