BBC starts DAB+ transmissions

The BBC World Service is now broadcasting on DAB+ for the first time, thanks to an agreement with Malta's digital audio broadcasting operator, Digi B Network Ltd.

Malta is one of the first countries in Europe to adopt the new DAB+ standard, which is expected to spread to other countries over the coming years.

Sergio D'Amico, managing director of Digi B Network Ltd says: "The future of radio is down the digital path, and DAB will be in the forefront. We are proud to be amongst the first to roll out DAB+, and we are even more proud having BBC World Service present on the platform."

BBC World Service continues to be available on FM in the country, but now available 24 hours a day on the multiplex Digi B Network 1.
