HD Radio enables exclusive HD2/HD3 channels. These are added sub-channels spun off the main radio frequency that broadcast new content for avid radio listeners in local markets. These channels are found directly adjacent to the main (HD1) station on the dial. Today, there are over 2000 radio stations in the US broadcasting with HD technology, more than 1100 of which are airing on the HD2/HD3 channels.

Superior sound quality is another of the significant benefits of HD Radio. BMW customers hearing HD broadcasts will experience CD-quality FM sound and high-quality AM clarity.

BMW was one of the pioneering automotive manufacturers to embrace HD Radio by providing the entertainment upgrade as an option in select models in 2006. Since then, BMW has continued to expand its commitment by adding HD Radio to more vehicles in its product lineup - and in 2007, it became the first automaker to offer factory-installed HD Radio receivers as an option across its entire product line, including the 3, 5, 6 and 7 Series, and the X3, X5 and Z4 models. In November 2008, BMW also tested and validated the capability for broadcasting real-time traffic information via HD Radio stations.
