Will this be broadcast television or cable?

Okay so to clear everything up-- WPHS-TV is a planned sister station to Cousino High School's radio station, WPHS-FM. Our goal for releasing it on streaming is late 2019/early 2020, and for terrestrial station in 2020. It'll be a low power station serving Sterling Heights/Warren and the surrounding areas, and will be available much more broadly via the stream on the internet. We would like to carry student-produced programming, such as newscasts and other original shows, but we need things to air when there's no student programming to show, which is why we either need a network or syndicated programming.

Wait, can a school even have a commercial TV station?
No, everything on that station over the air has to be non-commercial main and sub channels as far as streaming I’m not sure how that works for commercial content.

The big question is when the repack is completed where will there be space for a high school television station in the Detroit market and also where is the money coming from for the ATSC 3.0 technology for that station when the big broadcasters can barely afford it. Now on the other hand the streaming idea is economically the way to do it and of course the sensible way.

VHF-low will be pretty empty even post repack. Same with VHF-high. We're doing ordinary ATSC, not ATSC 3.0. We, like other broadcasters, obviously can't afford it yet so we're going with good old ATSC for now. The reason why we'd like to create an ATSC station is so students can get used to the dues, rules, and regulations that the FCC brings to terrestrial TV, such as censorship rules, the EAS system, and such. Basically, it delivers an authentic experience. Streaming will only be the beginning of it. Once we get the ball rolling with the terrestrial station, it'll be a simulcast of the stream.

Good luck with your project and hopefully you’ll be able to find a channel that’s available and the FCC will approve.
