Digital Radio Update - Dec 1, 2010
UK DAB funding issues, iTunes radio app hoopla, Sirius/XM Canada, the HD Radio Alliance seeks new friends, and iBiquity releases Persona Radio App notes.
Commercial radio group owners Global, Bauer, and UKRD turned down a flight of promotional spots touting the advantages of DAB radio.
Jim Barcus posted the note in hopes of triggering a broadcaster backlash against Apple after discovering that iTunes had rejected 10 apps his company had developed for client stations.
iBiquity hopes the application can bring HD Radio the kind of cachet now reserved for online media platforms.
The deal, structured as a stock and debt swap, is said to be valued at roughly half a billion dollars.
The Alliance promises to keep advancing HD Radio in 2011 with $110 million worth of no-charge spots.
