Formerly the Coalition for Free TV and Broadband, the Advanced Television Broadcasting Alliance goal is to preserve and promote the efficient and effective use of all television broadcast spectrum. At the NRB Convention in Nashville, one year from the formation of the Coalition and the day before legislation was signed authorizing spectrum auctions, the Coalition officially became the Alliance. The main change other than name is the growth to a sustaining organization with an operations staff and resources to fight for the cause on a daily basis.

The Advanced Television Broadcasting Alliance is actively promoting a widely accepted position that the television broadcast industry should adopt a new advanced television standard. A more capable standard would be good for consumers, offer the opportunity to double broadcast industry revenue and provide billions to the US Treasury. It would offer stations the flexibility to offer multiple HDTV signals or SD signals, advanced mobile wireless services compatible with future wireless carrier standards and various mobile video delivery services to name a few.
