Digital Radio Update - Apr 6, 2011
Hong Kong grants DAB+ licenses, DAB+ listening up Down Under, Ford standardizes DAB in UK line, Google trend for HD Radio down and HDRadio.com launches anew.
New 12-year licenses have been granted to three broadcast firms to construct and operate a DAB+ multiplex network designed to serve the territories of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR).
CEO Joan Warner notes that much work remains in the near term to increase retail availability and variety of receivers, build urban listening numbers, and implement regional DAB+ network rollouts.
Leading the way will be new models of the popular Ford Focus, now being delivered with standard DAB.
HD Radio searches peaked in 2007 and have declined by nearly two third since that time.
