Could I ask how Australia can be leading the way when they have been dragging their feet for years. DAB+ is still limited to a few state capitals, trials in Canberra and Darwin and no transmissions at all in Tasmania.

Thank you

Hi James,

You need to shop around for a better CDN, your quoted costs are about 5years old. CDN costs have really dropped in recent years. @343TB you shouldn't be paying any more than $25k aus per month. You'll get even lower with some providers.

The single biggest issue with streaming is connectivity in regional Australia. The cost of data has dropped for both the lister and broadcaster. Connectivity and reliability is still poor.

The other reason for slow uptake is, ease of use, streaming on apps is several clicks. Traditional Radio is an on button. Obviously, this is changing with connected cars, Apple Play, Ford Apps sync etc.

Norway switches off FM. But why don’t they just do streaming?

You can buy a shortwave radio in most places, and in overseas markets.
DAB+ not so much, or even nil, no-such-receiver, etc.

ABC cutting shortwave is a big mistake, and will cost lives of Australians soon, and in later years, locally in NT and local islands and then across all Asia as only Radio Australia can break through the media walls in this hemisphere.

A great read - I don't suppose EON would somehow snap up 4BH too? 2CH in the hands of a Masters Apprentice

Yes, but Peter you'll understand the ABC a lot better when you realise that it is not really a "broadcasting" organisation but a division of the public service - with all the baggage that entails. Who's really in charge at Radio National?

Re branding can be a slippery slope, especially when the job market ticker to the right of the story is still advertising jobs for StarFm Albury and Hot Fm Townsville. :-).

So good to know that the music directors in this world are all individual thinkers, not succumbing to temptation and playing tracks for the reason because "Its in the season".

Can't wait to see how many of them play "Winter in America" in 6 months time.
The most played tracks on radio so far this summer

Its true the National FM network will be switched off, however according to World Radio TV Handbook (WRTH) page 307 "Almost all local FM stations have been granted an extension until 2022." I thought there were concerns in Norway about the DAB coverage of the country - time will tell. Sweden and Finland are not keen on converting to DAB. Norway makes radio history
