In August 2007 a trial was launch by the TELEKO Company in co-operation with the public broadcaster Zesky Rozhlas with three DAB programmes and two programmes in DAB+. This trial used both Band III and L-Band and covered almost 130,000 people.

A further trial began in June 2008, again as a joint project between the TELEKO Company in cooperation with the public broadcaster Czech Radio. A 2.5Kw transmitter provided coverage of the capital city, Prague, to a population of around 1.3 million.  The goal of this non-commercial trial was the promotion of digital radio to the Czech public and Government administrators.  In early 2009 a further trial was launched in the second largest city Bruno covering approximately 0.5 million people. Further trials have also been held in other cities around the Czech Republic

In the past there have been DMB trials in the Czech Republic, however, the industry is waiting for the government to make regulatory decisions on mobile TV in the country as there are issues with lack of spectrum.
