Edge Networks is launching an over-the-air (OTA) pay TV service, Evoca. Based on ATSC 3.0, the service offers 80+ news, sports, local, and live TV channels for less than $50 per month. Scheduled for initial rollout this summer in Boise, ID, and focused on small and mid-sized markets, Evoca will feature HD and UltraHD/4K video when available.

"We're very excited to take this next big leap in television," said Edge Networks President and CEO Todd Achilles. "Thanks to major advances in broadcast TV technology, combined with our own proprietary systems, Evoca delivers a buffer-free 4K TV-watching experience. By using ATSC 3.0, our signal doesn't affect and isn't affected by Internet bandwidth in the home. Regardless of how many video games, movies or video conferences may be streaming, viewers will always receive a better quality picture and more reliable service than what they experience today."

Evoca uses a TV antenna and a proprietary receiver.

In the coming months, Evoca will share additional updates about content partners, pricing, channel lineup and rollout plans beyond Boise.
