The national multiplex was operated on channel 12B and carried programmes from RDP, among them Antena 1, Antena 2 and Antena 3, RDP Africa and RDP Internacional.
One channel was a test transmission of the classical music programme, Antena 2, at the reduced bit rate of 192 kbits/s. It was planned that the multiplex would carry 6 programmes – 3 of them from RDP (Antena 1, Antena 2 and Antena 3) and 3 other programmes.
