MuxCo updates plans for its new DAB Digital Radio multiplex that will serve Liverpool, Cheshire and North Wales.
Using transmitters at Moel-y-Parc, Wrexham Rhos and St.John’s Beacon, the multiplex will serve around 1.4m adults (15+) and enabling a range of existing and new services to broadcast in digital.
The multiplex will carry BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio Cymru, 107.6 Juice FM and Dee 106.3, allowing these existing services to both broadcast in digital quality and be heard by a wider audience than can currently hear them on analogue. In addition, the multiplex will carry a number of new services, only available on DAB Digital Radio. These will include Traffic Radio, a 24/7 traffic news and information service from the Highways Agency, a new music service from Town & Country Broadcasting and a range of data services from Folder Media.
The multiplex has opportunities for additional radio services to join this exciting multiplex.
MuxCo is currently finalising its contract with Arqiva, with proposals for the multiplex to launch in the second half of 2010.
More news to follow soon.
