RT+ is a more recent development coordinated by the RDS Forum since 2005. Now this technology is already part of the updated RDS standard (Annex P). The implementation of this new feature progresses very rapidly, specifically in Germany by the public broadcasters with already 25 radio programme chains using RT+ and in the USA with already over 600 commercial radio stations nationwide. Also, in late 2009, in London the commercial radio station Absolute Radio started to use RT+.

For broadcasters RT+ is very attractive as the same technology was also recently adopted for Digital Radio. Thus the investment in implementing RT+ will be future-proof.

Here is a PDF presentation that explains the RT+ implementation progress
