All DAB+ licences extended until 2026

25.09.2022 - Sweden Sweden

The Swedish Press and Broadcasting Authority [Myndigheten för press, radio och tv / MPRT] has decided to extend all licences for commercial digital radio (DAB+). The licences, which were due to expire at the end of September, are therefore valid until 31 July 2026. All licence holders have applied for and received the extension, which is being implemented to synchronise the licence periods for analogue and digital commercial radio. Available space in the two DAB+ commercial networks, operated by Bauer and Viaplay, will be put out to tender by MPRT. The authority says that a timetable has not yet been set but that it expects the call to be made after the New Year.
