Ibiquity Offers Promotional Radios to Stations
Dallas - Sep 21, 2006 - NAB Radio Show - HD Radio broadcasters across the country will begin new promotions this winter by giving away thousands of new radios. The HD Radio receivers span three product categories, highlighted by a connector that quickly upgrades listeners’ current car radios to receive all HD Radio programming. In addition, a tabletop radio and component tuner for home audio systems will be made available, providing broadcasters with the ability to appeal to a range of market segments. Ibiquity Digital is making these products available to HD Radio stations at $99 or more.
