DRM at NAB Las Vegas

Still not clear to me what problem DRM is trying to solve and by when. Now that BBC and DW are getting out of shortwave, I can't believe that listeners in the West are going to buy DRM radios at 100 dollars a piece to listen to CRI or All India Radio. It's not a distribution argument any more - it's all about audience information needs. I note the nicely coloured map in the video is now out of date - as Canada and Russia are apparently not going any further.  But I guess Las Vegas was nice.
