  • Patent number: 10924196
    Abstract: The present technology relates to a reception apparatus, a reception method, a transmission apparatus, and a transmission method permitting provision of an emergency warning service more suited to actual operation. Provided is a reception apparatus including a reception section and a demodulation section. The reception section receives a physical layer frame transported as a broadcast signal on the basis of monitoring information that is included in upper layer signalling, signalling in a layer higher than a physical layer, and that is used to monitor a specific service. The demodulation section demodulates physical layer signalling acquired from the physical layer frame and monitors whether emergency warning information has been transported on the basis of emergency warning notice information acquired as a result of the demodulation.
