HD Radio

What is HD Radio™ Technology and how does it work?

HD Radio™ Technology is the digital evolution of analog AM/FM radio. Your radio product has a special receiver which allows it to receive digital broadcasts (where available) in addition to the analog broadcasts it already receives. Digital broadcasts have better sound quality than analog broadcasts as digital broadcasts provide free, crystal clear audio. For more information, and a guide to available radio stations and programming, please visit

Benefits of HD Radio™ Technology (Information)

The song title, artist name, album name and genre will appear on the screen when available by the radio station.

(Multicast) On the FM radio frequency most digital stations have “multiple” or supplemental programs on each FM station.
