All In Media has agreed a deal with Arqiva to phase in Electronic Programme Guide services to its Now Digital local DAB multiplexes across the country.
AIM’s EPG software means radio stations can deliver their programme schedules to a range of platforms, including online, mobile and DAB.
All In Media’s managing director, Chris Gould says: “In the past, EPG has been available for a small number of stations on an ad hoc basis. This investment in services and content by Arqiva greatly expands the stations offering an electronic programme guide to listeners. It’s good news for the industry and good news for consumers.”
All In Media already supplies its EPG software to other countries broadcasting DAB and DAB+ radio, including Ireland and Australia. The deal with Arqiva makes AIM the world’s biggest supplier of DAB EPG systems to digital radio broadcasters.
