Though HD Radio is still in its infancy, it’s a technology that will eventually catch on in the following years as long as the support is there for it. Best Buy has now started stocking HD Radio receivers at all 832 of its stores, which will surely give HD Radio the help it needs. Says Robert Struble, President and CEO of iBiquity Digital Corporation, who developed the technology behind HD Radio:
“This is another major step forward for HD Radio technology,”
“Following rapid adoption by the broadcast community and an increasing range of products for the mass market, Best Buy’s efforts will dramatically accelerate consumer adoption of this great technology.”
Now all it comes down to is price. Make HD Radio affordable for the consumers who love radio and they shall flock to your service.
