But regardless of my vested interest, I think there are a bunch of good reasons to get an HD radio the next time you buy a radio:
– HD lets you get the free HD2 and HD3 channels where there is a ton of great programming, all currently advertising free. Here’s a listing of all the HD channels, including HD2 and HD3, in the NYC market.
– HD offers advanced data services on the radios, starting with things like artist, song, and title information, but over time including traffic, weather, and other real time data services.
– HD offers CD quality sound on the FM band and FM quality sound on the AM band.
