HD on AM has become a bigger fiasco than AM Stereo.

I recently saw an article that stated after all this time less than a
half million HD radios have been sold nationwide. There is no
compelling reason to buy one.

TV is only now getting a handle on what to put on the digita
sub-channels. FOX for example will soon solve the biggest gripe
baseball fans have by offering all 3 of their Saturday baseball games
to every affiliate. Local commercials are then protected. FOX has an
exclusive window on Saturdays between 1 and 7 and the games were not
offered on the baseball service.

Using Scott as an example, FOX in Rochester may offer the Yankees on
the main channel but now the Red Sox could be shown at the same time.
This is a creative use of spectrum.
