To deliver the content of a TV network, ensuring efficient spectrum usage, filling not covered and shadow areas, and with energy savings are the advantages of Single Frequency Networks. Thus, in this study we sought to measure information, frequency, and time synchronism to evaluate the status of SFN implementation in Brazilian broadcasting. We took as base of analysis the Digital TV stations of the Campinas/SP area. Through this paper, we demonstrate that one of the great advantages of ISDB-Tb, the formation of a single frequency network, still cannot be implemented in Brazil.
