For more than five years, U.S. radio broadcasters have devoted time and resources to marketing and promoting HD Radio technology to consumers and listeners. At the same time, broadcasters and other providers have developed applications for wired and wireless devices that allow listeners to experience radio and radio-like services from around the globe. This presentation examines the functionality and utility of HD Radio and online audio services, and explains why HD Radio continues to be a marginal technology.


This presentation was given at the Broadcast Education Association's Annual Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
