HD radio can also be received via some smartphone apps like TuneIn (Irish
Radio Mojo, Free Form WBCN, The Bone etc.) and also via station
websites.(for example under "Music" on the WKLB site, one can find the
stream for "The Wolf").

While in the Pittsburgh area a few weeks ago, I had a rental car with HD in
it. In some cases even HD-4s would come in.
