On 31 May, Korea became the first country to broadcast UHD over-the-air using the newly adopted ATSC 3.0 standard. This begins in the greater Seoul area, then expands to other major markets over the next 5 years, culminating in the end of HD broadcasting around 2027. This is especially important in advance of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Korea.
