Experience your favorite public radio programs in digital clarity.
On May 1, 2004, KUOW became the first public radio station in our region to broadcast in HD Radio.
KUOW 94.9 FM Seattle broadcasts three digital channels:
- KUOW HD1: Broadcasts current KUOW programming.
- KUOW HD2: Broadcasts KUOW2, an additional public service from KUOW serving the South Sound region.
- KUOW HD3: Broadcasts BBC World Service.
KUOW 1340 AM Tumwater/Olympia broadcasts in one digital channel.
Just as HDTV provides television viewers with a crisp video image, HD Radio technology provides radio listeners with a stronger, cleaner signal than analog radio. When you listen to any KUOW service on a digital receiver, you will hear how clear your favorite programs sound: free from static, hiss, pops and fades.

KUOW broadcasting in HD Radio is better than digital satellite radio.
- KUOW HD is near-CD quality — satellite radio quality varies on the feed.
- KUOW HD is available to all listeners — satellite radio is a paid monthly subscription service.
- KUOW HD offers local programming — satellite radio does not.
HD Radio receivers are available in stores now, view the HD Radio Buyer's Guide.
KUOW is proud to take a leadership role for this important service in the Puget Sound region. If you have any questions, please use our online contact form.
