I had HD Radio in my old car, & liked it OK at the beginning. There was a pretty good old school R&B station, & a couple other decent subchannels. But pretty quickly, stations just started using the subchannels for simulcasting their AM stations & their lower-power FM stations. Kinda defeated the purpose at that point.
Even if it's not free, I find my XM Radio offers way more.
Hey, here's an idea. Let's take a technology that's fading in content, such as FM radio; but instead of the already limited broadcast radius of FM, we'll make it a fraction of the size, so that hardly anyone can get it. And we'll call it HD radio, which doesn't stand for "high-definition" radio, as one would think, but for, um, well nobody really knows what HD radio stands for. Yeah, that's the ticket.
Is it just me or is this a tad bit scary?
