... Promotes Multicasting on Web

Northeast Indiana Public Radio also is promoting its multicasting offerings on WBOI HD1, HD2 and HD3, and HD Radio in general, on its Web site.
Among the explanations is "How is HD Radio is different from satellite radio." The site is here.
WBOI states: "While Sirius and XM use digital transmission, a key difference is that our digital broadcasts will be over-the air and available FREE to all listeners, whereas satellite radio is a monthly pay subscription service. There is no monthly charge to enjoy HD Radio.
"Further, while XM and Sirius offer a greater number of channels, they are national services that do not provide local news, weather, or other local content. However, like the satellite services, HD Radio listeners will have to purchase new receivers."
