Talking DAB and the future of radio


Even the Irish prefer DAB+

The Broadcasting Commission of Ireland just published a report into Digital Radio in Ireland, where the commercial radio sector would prefer DAB+ and even RTE, who have been supportive of DAB admits that Ireland will transition to DAB+.

Never mind the millions of radios already sold, DAB has failed - transition to DAB+ as soon as possible before FM switchover. What I find amazing is how it is considered acceptable to kill off the many millions of working and serviceable FM radios out there for DAB, but it is totally unacceptable to kill off or upgrade the existing nine million DAB radios for DAB+!?
