There's competition for the DAB multiplex licence in Herts, Beds and Bucks. The regulator has received two applications to serve the area, from expected bidder NOW Digital and newcomer MuxCo Home Counties.
The GCap-operated NOW multiplex would offer three variants of their One Network, namely two Chiltern stations and Horizon, as well as Xfm, Chill and UCB. The rival MuxCo is jointly owned by TLRC, Adventure Radio, Absolute and Hertbeat owners Shadow Radio Holdings and would offer Chiltern, Horizon and Classic Gold as well as Hertbeat and a new service from Adventure known as Mercury Plus.
The full proposed lineups can be found on the Ofcom website [link=http://www.ofcom.org.uk/radio/ifi/rbl/dcr/applications/app_hertsbedsbucks/]here[/link].
