CBS Radio, Clear Channel, Cumulus, Cox, Entercom and Greater Media announced they’re in the process of installing iTunes Tagging technology. As a result, consumers who hear a song on their local HD Radio stations – and want to preview, buy and download it later on iTunes – will soon be able to do that with just the touch of a button on an enabled HD Radio receiver.
iTunes Tagging enables consumers using HD Radio receivers that have been equipped with a special Tag button, to "tag" songs that they hear on the FM dial for subsequent preview and purchase on iTunes.
JBL and Polk Audio will have the first available products that enable iTunes Tagging. The new Polk I-Sonic Entertainment System 2 and the JBL iHD will both include the Tag button. Additional products that include the Tag button for both the home and car will follow in early 2008.
