no jim, no.

WBCN offers an HD station. its different than standard radio but still free, just requires a separate reciever

on subject at hand, i would have it but the add on for my radio is abou $300.. radio isnt worth that much to me

HD radios are junk. Maybe sometime in the future is satellite radio somehow bottomed out. Not all local stations have HD radio, I heard the signal strength doesn't carry as far, all that extra money for just a couple stations, that in the end are still just radio stations? Sirius is much better, and less expensive, you can get a lifetime subscription for 500 bucks

most add-on HD recievers for car applications run around 100 bucks. and atleast here in teh boston area, there are over 30 HD channels available.. I can not vouch for the range comparison however

Hig definition radio?
That what that is?
So now, the non-stop re-mortgage and cell phone commercials come in even more clear?

Think I will stick to the XM.
