BBC annual report: Trust questions future of DAB radio
Ben Dowell, July 8 2008
The "long-term viability" of digital radio has today been questioned by the BBC Trust, which said that all digital-only stations, including those offered by the corporation, had "yet to make a breakthrough".
In the BBC's annual report for the year to the end of March, published today, the trust said it "remains to be seen" whether the launch of the second national commercial digital multiplex backed by Channel 4 later this year "will boost the market sufficiently to ensure its longterm viability".
"Although growing, reach and audience awareness [of digital audio broadcasting] remain low. In November, the government launched the Digital Radio Working Group to look at how to promote digital radio and increase penetration," the BBC Trust added.
Public awareness of digital-only radio services such as BBC 6Music also remains "low" according to the trust, with only 41% of the population having heard of them, even when prompted.
"Concerns have grown about the future of DAB within the commercial radio market," the BBC Trust warned.
