Polish broadcast operator BCAST launched a trial local DAB+ multiplex in Warsaw on 24 August 2018. The multiplex will include local radio stations including Radio Kolor or Muzo.fm, as well as national broadcasters, like Radio Maryja, and also for the first time internet stations such as Radiojazz.fm.

Operated by Emitel, the trial local multiplex broadcasts four national DAB+ services, three local DAB+ services (the same in all regions) and one TPEG traffic information service.

The DAB+ implementation strategy assumes the creation of three new national services and one additional regional service broadcasted in digital only. Finally the multiplex of public service broadcasters will contain 10 nationwide services and two regional services available on the relevant regional territory. 

 

The DAB+  implementation schedule

1st Oct 2013  regular DAB+ services in Warsaw and Katowice

1st Aug 2014, regular DAB+ services in Gdansk, Kielce, Krakow, Wroclaw and Szczecin

1st Oct 2014, regular DAB+ services in Poznan, Lodz and Opole

1st Jan 2015, regular DAB+ services in Bydgoszcz, Koszalin, Olsztyn and Zielona Gora

1st Apr 2015, regular DAB+ services in Bialystok, Lublin and Rzeszow
