    Religious programming on HD subchannels may seem like a waste, but I bet they pay for that privilege, making HD channels bring in some extra revenue.

    Just sayin'.

    It appears that HD Radio subchannels are increasingly being used to provide signals for translators, or being leased to ethnic programmers. As these uses can bring in revenue to the stations, can they be blamed for doing this, instead of providing niche programming that attracts few listeners or advertisers? When a broadcaster is willing to lease an HD channel, the broadcasters seem to be quite willing to dump their original programming to make room for it. A recent example is WPLJ dropping the WABC simulcast to accommodate a Russian broadcast.

    I think FM stations need to sell ads about HD radio a lot of newer cars have them no one uses them. If they market them well and putting useful formats on them much like Sirius XM does they'd gain listeners.

    The salespeople do not even know what HD Radio is. I asked my salesperson and he said "High Definition Radio?" 99% of the people out there have no clue of its benefits. It also doesn't help that the A/V Receivers that contain HD Radio are the ones that cost at least $1000. They need to get it in the $250 to $500 models to get people aware of it.

    The licensing cannot be too expensive given that you can find HD Portable Radios so why can't Onkyo, Yamaha, Denon, Marantz and Pioneer start putting it out to the masses?

    The general answer you will receive here is "nobody buys standalone radios."

    Well, some people do buy them. But the younger the demo, the less likely, and we all know what that really means... "no one buys standalone radios."

    WBLS now has an HD3. It is broadcasting what seems to be programming in Chinese. Can anyone confirm the language? Is it an existing service that moved off another frequency, a simulcast, or something new?
