HD Radio Broadcasting Around the World
HD Radio Technology is being tested and adopted in more than a dozen countries throughout the world, due in large part to its ability to deliver digital quality sound and services while making greater use of the existing analog spectrum. There are more stations broadcasting today with HD Radio Technology around the world than DAB or DRM, and over 300,000 hours of HD Radio broadcasts are transmitted each week.
Initial stages of HD Radio testing and conversion began in the United States in 2003 but the benefits of HD Radio Technology have resulted in significant interest from broadcasters worldwide. HD Radio stations are operating in Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, the Philippines, Romania, Thailand and Ukraine and successful testing and trials have been conducted in many countries throughout the world, including Argentina, Bosnia, Colombia, Czech Republic, Germany, Indonesia, New Zealand, Poland, Switzerland and Vietnam.
