Example of services on air
Gama Radio was originally the local analogue station in the city of most Northern Bohemia. They had limited options for how to increase coverage. The station management started to collaborate with the network operators TELEKO and RTI cz and the program coverage area was expanded. Gama Radio now covers 5 million inhabitants. Benefits could be found on both sides. The station now covers more listeners without
dramatically increasing the costs, because no transmitters were built by the station itself and there were no licenses needed for the frequencies. The content licenses for digital radio were issued without any obstacles. For the network operator it enabled new attractive content for listeners and set a precedent for discussion with other stations. 

SeeJay Radio is a dance radio station which was previously only available on the internet. The station now benefits from a larger audience due to free to air broadcasting via DAB+ on the RTI cz and TELEKO multiplexes. The station is promoting DAB distribution in its content.
