ATSC reception is free--doesn't require a paid subscription as do Onstar, Acuralink, XM and Serius. Don't know about Ibiquity or HD radio as far as subscriptions though.

Ah-Ha!

It may then be that the other subscription service owners don't want a service that is 'free' bundled in with their 'paid' services.

It might dilute their profits and cause anarchy within their subscriber base when they begin asking why some services are free and others have a cost.
