These additional channels are called HD2/HD3 Channels, and are located on the FM dial, adjacent to regular stations. It’s free and no subscription is required, you would onlyneed an HD enabled receiver to get digital sound.
Although technology and invention have created advantages and disadvantages, one of the main reasons devices are being invented is to make a task easier to perform.
Technology has made people lazier and more static, creating obesity issues specially on kids and teenagers.Since technology changes so rapidly, products have become disposable.It is inevitable that as technology develops so traditional cultures must be lost.
