The Future of DAB Digital Radio

DAB has been very succesful in the UK, with over 1.5 million DAB radios sold, DAB receivers nowavailable for less than £50 and the sales of digital radios have outstriping the demand for traditional setsfor the first time, DAB radio is finally starting to take off.

It predicts that, with the radios becoming increasingly cheaper, this will have risen to 2.4 million bythe end of 2005, and to 8.3 million by 2008. Consumers spent £87 million on digital sets in 2004.

One new feature coming soon to DAB is radio programme guides (EPGs), which allow you to view the whatis coming up on the radio station, similar to the TV guides you can get on your set-top boxes.
