The Namibia Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) held a conference in early March 2002 to look into digital
broadcasting for radio and television. As a result of the conference, greater and on-going co-operation between
SABA (Southern Africa Broadcasting Association) and SADIBA (Southern African Digital Broadcasting Association) has been planned. While the immediate emphasis has been on Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), which was launched in Namibia in February 2005, broadcasters are equally interested in DAB+ digital radio. A number of digital radio test broadcasts have been conducted in South Africa.

Key features of regulation for digital radio in Namibia are;
- consistent with the GE-06, member countries should facilitate the sharing of the band 174 – 230 MHz (Band III) for Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) and T-DAB;
- DTT should be assigned to band (174 – 214) while T-DAB should utilize band (214-230MHZ) (Band III)
