The main benefits are that you have a very wide range of coverage without losing the signal (There are areas where the transmission may not reach as well, especially in areas of tall buildings), it offers 100s of choices of programming (many without commericals or even annoying dj banter), offers exclusive programming, and can allow you not to miss some local radio programming, as they do broadcast some shows that are from regular terrestial stations.
