What is XDS?XDS stands for X-Digital Systems. Simply, it’s a digital satellite delivery method available to terrestrial radio stations. Over 5,000 stations in the U.S. have this technology already in place to receive syndicated programming.This is what the major players are using to pick up live programming, delay shows and allow for local commercial inserts. This is not the satellite you know as SiriusXM, but a service available only to radio stations for broadcast of programs like yours.Why XDS?XDS is the preferred method of satellite distribution. It’s as easy as flipping a switch. No pesky streams, relays or FTP to deal with. Just the best audio delivered to the best stations in the country on-demand.
