talkRADIO and talkSPORT2 switching to DAB+

Wireless stations talkRADIO and talkSPORT2 are moving from DAB to DAB+.

The move is expected to free up capacity for the new News UK service Times Radio on the Sound Digital National multiplex.

talkRADIO currently has two channels – its original and a new DAB+ channel titled talkRADIO + to give listeners a chance to switch over.

talkSPORT2 however has made the full move already telling listeners to retune straight away. Only those listeners with DAB+ capable receivers will be able to pick up the stations going forwards.
