BBC Radio extends HD Sound

All BBC Radio 3 programmes will be available in HD Sound from tomorrow, following a trial during the Proms.

The extra high quality audio service is expected to be applied to more live BBC online streams in the future, starting with special events on BBC Radio 2.

HD Sound highlights on Radio 3 over the next month include the BBC Singers collection of modern Christmas carols on BBC Radio 3's Breakfast show in the run up to New Year and The Genius of Mozart season.

Radio 3 Controller Roger Wright says: "It's wonderful that Radio 3 listeners can now experience all our programmes in even better sound quality when listening online. I hope as many people as possible take the opportunity to experience our Mozart season in the New Year and our Christmas output including the King's College Cambridge Nine Lessons and Carols service and carols from the BBC Singers and enjoy the enhanced audio quality of HD Sound.”

Tim Davie, Director of BBC Audio and Music, says: “We are excited to be driving innovation in the radio industry. I expect Radio 3 to the be first of an overall industry drive to keep improving the quality of audio for listeners.”

Initially the stream will only be available for live programmes (not on demand) for UK listeners only.
