In April 2019, a 20 month trial was launched in Bangkok and the areas surrounding the capital. 

The trial network consists of one DAB+ multiplex with a capacity of up to 18 services. There is a total of 11 trial services (stations) on air with the trial, including the top ten most popular commercial radio stations, and one test channel.

The final phase of the trial – the launch of advanced services – is expected to be completed in 2020.

The objective of the trial is to discover appropriate network parameters in different environments, and to demonstrate interference-free audio, business models, introduce new data services on DAB+ including slideshow, data, emergency warning, EPG, and pop-up services.

NBTC and ITU have joint project on Roadmap Development for Digital Terrestrial Radio Roll Out in Thailand. The study report “Deployment Strategies for Digital Radio Services in Thailand” is available on at https://broadcast.nbtc.go.th/data/academic/file/600300000002.pdf
