The first DAB+ trial of private radio stations in Greece, started on 28th Apr 2018 in Thessaloniki.
Under a temporary license by the Greek Telecom Authority (EETT), a collaboration of the companies “Greekstream Networks” & “Sigmacom Broadcast” started trial transmissions on channel 12B, covering most of the central Macedonia region.
The multiplex initially started with 6 programmes (simulcast FM and DAB+), reaching 18 programmes in early May, and the number of stations expressing their interest to participate in the trial, is growing.
The service and all the necessary equipment is being provided by the trial operator at no cost to the participating stations, in order to give them the opportunity to experience DAB+ and promote it.
A DAB+ trial is on air in Athens, covering part of the capital of Athens and its northern vicinity.
