Hmmm. Digital radio. I see a new market here for pay radio. Encrypt the signal and say you have to use our box to receive the programming. Just imagine The Radio Network or Sky getting their hands on this and sending all live radio sports commentaries over it. Pay to listen or don't listen at all. Just like the Sky TV model..

Its done over satellite in the US, and seemed to work ok till people started to use their mobiles for music services. Still has some of the more entertaining stuff on it since the FCC have rendered US broadcast media totally useless.
