What is HD Digital RadioTM?
We are all familiar with HD programming. Incredible quality picture when watching your favorite sports and programming. Now, you can enjoy HD quality audio, right from your radio. HD Radio Technology is the digital upgrade to your AM/FM radio, which has always been delivered through analog signals. We are redefining radio. HD Radio Technology is the only digital broadcast system approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for AM and FM radio in the US. Digital radio gives you new FM channels through multicasting, crystal-clear sound, and data services all free, with no subscription fee. Nearly 2,100 HD Radio stations are on the air in the US with more than 1,300 new HD2/HD3 Channels. Listen to the same great stations, in crystal-clear audio.
How It Works
More stations. Digital sound. No subscription. FREE!
More Local Stations
Lets say your favorite local radio station is on 96.9FM. With HD Radio technology, that same station is being broadcast in digital sound on 96.9 HD1. Plus you can access all new content on up to three additional stations: 96.9 HD2, HD3, and HD4.
HD Radio stations broadcast in clear digital quality to your local area making static, radio hiss and fuzz a thing of the past. Hear the difference of digital sound using the samples to the right.
HD Radio technology enables receivers to display song titles, album art, and station information so you get the true Artist Experience® with PSD (Program Service Data).
Our data network allows us to broadcast Digital Traffic and Instant Info including everything from changing weather conditions to the latest sports scores and emergency messages. HD Radio signals provide reliability when you need it most all with the touch of a button.
How It Works
By broadcasting digitally over traditional radio waves, a single frequency is now capable of delivering up to four stations of content in crystal clear sound. All you do is tune in to your favorite station and your HD Radio receiver will automatically lock in to the HD1 signal for that station. One notch over on the dial and youre listening to entirely new content on the HD2 station. Additionally the digital signal provides on-screen information such as: album art, song info, traffic and weather.
