DAB+ has been adopted as the official digital radio standard in Israel. The Israeli Ministry of Communication offered a permanent DAB+ country-wide licence for tender in 2008. The licence is for a period of 14 years and the winning bidder is expected to make provision for 36 channels and achieve a coverage area of 80%, rising to between 90% and 98%, depending on location. There has been no response to the Ministry’s initial call for bids, and it may be that a multiplatform landscape, including DAB+, would better suit the country’s needs.
