Radio Argues 76% People Want Pay for Cellphone FM Tuner

NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) released results of the survey carried out in the country. It claims that the majority of mobile phone users want to have the ability to listen to local radio via a built-in radio receiver on their cell phones. The poll was held in order to encourage attempts by the RIAA and NAB to convince Congress to demand all portable devices to have a built-in FM tuner. In respond, the radio would pay $100 million as royalties to musicians and record labels.

Unsurprisingly, the RIAA is coming to a new level of insanity with partnering with the NAB to lobby Congress to demand all portable devices should have a built-in FM tuner.

As for now, the terrestrial radio, unlike webcasters and satellite radio, has a longstanding exemption from royalty fees under the country’s copyright legislation in the name of musicians’ promotion. If their attempt proves successful, the radio loses the exemption and pays around $100 million annually to the RIAA while getting an expanded audience. In other words, everyone wins except for the consumers.

After criticism rose, the NAB has decided to conduct a new nationwide poll, and now is ready to release its results. In short words, they reveal that US citizens can’t wait to get an FM tuner installed in their mobiles.

The survey found that over 3/4 of mobile phone owners are ready to pay 30 cents to access local radio via a built-in radio chip, the main reasons for listening the stations being music and local weather. A little less then 3/4 also pointed out they consider it very important to be able to get local weather and emergency alerts through their cell phones. The survey was conducted online within 3 days among 2,500 American adults.

NAB present the results to support their suggestion, but the results seem to be totally bogus. Can one imagine 2,000 people dying to listen to the drone of stale, ad-filled terrestrial radio while they can get absolutely free music streaming services, such as Pandora and Last.fm? This has to be a joke unless the researchers forgot to specify which the respondents prefer: streaming radio or terrestrial radio?

The most outrageous fact is that this suggestion would never come to exist if the RIAA didn’t try to extract more money from radio broadcasters. That’s just another prove that the music industry fails to innovate and trying to compensate at the expense of their own consumers.

menahunie avatarNAB (National Association of Broadcasters) state 3/4 of mobile phone users want/pay for a FM Tuner in their cell phone?

What I wasn't polled or asked... What? did they ask four people and three of them said they wanted the tuner?
Polls are full of crap and we all know polls can be made to turn out numbers the way you want them.
A real "poll" would be ALL cell companies ask their customers " do you want a radio tuner in your cell phone, and would you pay a monthly service fee to listen to radio"?
I'd guess they wouldn't like the results..

fusseltier avatarthat is a blatant lie, people do not want radio in their cell phones.
i dont want radio or gps in my cell phone.
in europe people have to pay a license fee (tax) for radio and tv.
thats even a car radio or clock radio or boom box.
its only the US broadcasting association trying to make this. (national as in US national)
do they think people are going to listen to the radio more if there
is one in their cell phone?
i dont use mine to listen to music, i use my mp3 player if i want music,
and for sure i wouldnt want to listen to broadcast radio with all the
commercials they are always playing.

darcman avatarThats BS, ITS A MAJOR CASH GRAB, PERIOD!!!!!
What consumer wants another fee and wants to pay more for anything?
So the proposed charge will be 30 cents. that wont be the end.
Next the charge will be 50 cents, then $1, then per second of radio listening, it will happen, dont kid yourself.
Its like asking consumers "who wants to pay higher taxes", 0 percent is more like it.
