Those who gave the radio good reviews included these comments [italics added for emphasis]:
"HD is the future of free radio."And while there were some negative comments about the radio itself, there were statements like these [italics added for emphasis]:
"I like my local talk radio programs so that is why I went with HD radio vs. satellite, and it's free of course."
"I was able to get all these additional channels… without paying a subscription fee."
"Yes, the radio is ugly, but i sure like not paying XM!!!"
"Save your money and get Satellite Radio… which have hundreds of stations HD Radio just carries local stations."No subscription fees vs. premium content. The non-discussion continues.
"It's OK, but my Sirius Satellite Radio is just plain awesome... content is everything and Sirius has it all...."
"200 CH TO CHOOSE FROM ALL DIGTIAL EVERYWHERE YOU GO!!"
