MuxCo bags Mid and West Wales
The latest digital radio multiplex for Wales has been given to MuxCo Wales, in which Town and Country Broadcasting holds the majority stake. MuxCo will provide one new service called Wales Live, as well as re-transmitting Radios Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire and BBC Radio Cymru.
MuxCo plans to set up four transmitters to provide total outdoor coverage of 55.8 per cent of the adult population. And although there are only three commercial services planned, more stations are planned for the future.
MuxCo said: "Ideally we would also like to broadcast a number of additional stations in the area, both existing analogue and some new services too. Whilst we’ve had some good discussions with potential operators, we’re not yet in a place where we can guarantee that we will be bringing them to the area."
