Anybody got HD radio

I have Sirius in my F150, so I want to upgrade my reciever in my accord to Sirius also. Questions is, is getting a radio with a built in HD tuner worth it. It does not really cost anymore to get one with a HD tuner, it just cuts way down on the choices.

I almost never listen to FM anymore, but since I am getting a new radio anyways, was just wondering if the HD is worth it, as far as quality of the sound being better over regular FM.

it's free radios answer to sat. radio.

So just make sure your radio has an auxiliary input for the ipod/portable media device.

Choice of listening to what we want.

Commercials are sooo last century. Radio/TV should freely allow commercial skipping. If a person skips that ad, it means they aren't interested. If they don't, then maybe they are. Hint: You can provided better, more relevant advertising by paying closer attention to this.

The current Radio/TV model = dead.

Oh, and take the coast to coast am show. It's a 4 hour* nightly program.

For a small fee, you can download that show with the commercials and bumper music removed. You get just the content.

* that 4-hour show is actually just 2.5 hours long. That's 1.5 hours of commercials :BangHead:

Most of my entertainment comes from podcasts now. 99.9% of them are free.

You KNOW something is wrong with your industry when you can't even give your away for FREE!

HD =

i have installed this in a few cars, its a complete waste. theres only like 3 stations you pick up extra, and it doesnt even sound any clearer. The only thing that really changes is AM. And if your listening to AM, you really are not worried about quality on "talk radio" :laughing6
