At NOW Digital we try to offer a range of services to that cater for different tastes and interests. We also try to ‘simulcast’ existing FM and AM stations that broadcast in local areas. NOW Digital, cannot however force stations to join the multiplexes, it is up to them whether they decide to broadcast on DAB. If there is a station that you would like to hear on a local multiplex, we suggest contacting that station directly and asking why they are not broadcasting to this area on DAB Digital Radio. If they see that there is a demand for their service it may encourage them to join the local multiplex.
