DAB radio gets 12 extra stations in the UK

DAB Radio was always intended as a natural successor to AM and FM radio, promising better audio quality, easier tuning and extra station information. The technology has never quite delivered though, with countless reports of poor coverage in rural areas. The UK government is trying its best to fix the problem, but in the meantime other forms of delivery are taking hold — streaming over the web, for instance, is becoming increasingly viable both on the move and in the home. – Nick Summers, Engadget

  • And certain stations are bought out in 2016, then discontinued nationally leaving alot of consumers with actually less choice than ever before. So no progress what-so-ever really. DAB – dead white elephant, go internet radio instead.
