DAB is currently on air in two cities/areas (Beijing and Hong Kong in Band III). China’s regulatory body, State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television (SARFT), chose DAB as the standard for digital audio services in May 2006, and tested DMB services in the following years. Beijing Jolon, GTM in Guangzhou and other broadcasters provided DMB services during the Olympic Games in 2008. 

Beijing Jolon, the biggest broadcaster in Beijing, launched ‘Push Radio’ based on DAB in 2010 in Beijing. The technology, developed by Jolon, sends an audio file directly to a DAB+ digital radio receiver instead of requiring the listener to connect their iPod or mp3 player to the internet to receive programming. Beijing Jolon broadcasts 30 hours – or 25 program channels everyday through Push Radio.
