    Considering the dwindling number of people around here that still subscribe to satellite radio, the focus should change. There are too many sub forums for too little interest.

    "Digital" covers it all. Talk about anything that you like.
    If a particular service generates enough buzz, we'll creat a sub-forum for it.
    Or you can always start your own forum if this one isn't working for you.

    I think we have something like 4 hd channels in this town and they can all be accessed on the internet.

    Clear channel had taken their hd channels and put them on I heart radio.

    I personally can't wait until I get a car with Bluetooth or CarPlay.

    I think I will just chuck this in here - not sure where else to.....

    Brigham Young University is consolidating its radio and TV operations. “Classical 89” KBYU-FM and BYUradio—heard previously only on SiriusXM Radio and via digital platforms—will combine operations and be known going forward as BYUradio. The new station will be heard on KBYU-FM (89.1) and KUSR (89.5) throughout Utah and will also continue on satellite radio.

    The refocused station will feature live locally hosted talk, public affairs, educational and classical music programming, similar to what has been heard on the SiriusXM station. Shows include “Top of Mind,” “Mormon Identities” and “BYU Sports Nation.”

    BYU Broadcasting expects “some audience loss” for dropping the full-time classical music format in favor of its expanded BYUradio offerings. “Classical 89 is a phenomenal station,” managing director Michael Dunn told Current. “It’s done well, it has a great audience and it’s respected nationally. We’re not making the format change to improve audience numbers but to do what’s smart.”

    BYU Broadcasting is also combining its TV operations—BYUtv, “KBYU Eleven” KBYU-TV and BYUtv International—into a single television network. KBYU Eleven is currently available in HD across all platforms, over the air and on cable and satellite, while BYUtv is only available in HD on some platforms. With the change, BYUtv will be available in HD on all platforms across the state through KBYU’s license. As of June, when the change takes place, KBYU Eleven will no longer be a member station of the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).

    BYUtv International, a satellite Spanish-language station which had limited availability in Latin America, will end operations. The company plans to offer international programming via streaming services that are available at

    “BYU Broadcasting will continue to emphasize original, values-oriented, family content on BYUtv and BYUradio,” Dunn said in an announcement. “This consolidation of services will allow our organization to focus, simplify and unify the future of our media portals.”
