Next Gen Datacasting has long been considered a key technology and business potential of Next Gen Broadcasting and ATSC3. Over the past two years, the first real, production-grade services have been developed, deployed, and are now in operation in stations across the country – and generating new non-television revenue for broadcasters, service providers, and technology suppliers.

This paper will explore three specific use-cases based on Next Gen technology: remote learning services supporting students without access to broadband internet; support of public safety and first-responders with secure data and video streaming over broadcast infrastructure; and public alert & warning services. We will describe the use-case problems to solve, the technical approaches to implementation, and the path to monetization and recurring revenue. Real-world deployments will be used in examples of all three use-cases, and we will share lessons learned from requirements definition, development, deployment, and ongoing operations of these services.
