Digital radio availability
Information on where digital radio is transmitted and the services offered in each city is available on the radio industry website.
Do you need a new radio?
In order to receive digital radio services, you will need a digital receiver or a device with a Digital Audio Broadcasting Plus (DAB+) chip in it. Information on DAB+ receiver models and their retailers is available on the radio industry website.
Reviews into digital radio
The Department is currently conducting two statutory reviews into digital radio services in Australia, which will consider the regulatory regime and technologies. The Minister expects to report to the Parliament on the reviews shortly.
As part of the review process, the Department released a digital radio discussion paper in December 2013 (the submission period for this paper has now closed).
Note: the DRM.org submission to the review is an amended version of the Department of Communications’ discussion paper.
