EBU releases notes on UK DRM+ trials, Mexico submits HD Radio as voluntary standard, commercial radio joins Belgian DAB, and Clear Channel acquires Thumbplay.
The UK trial is taking place under BBC supervision using a combined antenna facility and channel formerly assigned to a defunct commercial talk station on 107MHz.
Unlike the FCC's rulemaking process in the United States, COFETEL must submit its policy decisions to COFEMER for final review and integration into Mexico's federal code of regulations.
VDL Benelux will offer six DAB+ commercial radio channels along with a T-DMB service starting in April.
Clear Channel intends to leverage the music service and its technology, product and marketing teams to expand its popular iHeartRadio mobile application.
