LONDON�The U.K''s national, commercial DAB network, known as Digital One, plans to commission four new transmitter sites before the end of this year, and an additional five next year.

Improved coverage is expected for Absolute Radio, LBC, Premier, Kiss, Classic FM, talkSPORT, Absolute 80s, Capital Xtra, BFBS, Planet Rock, Smooth Radio, TeamRock, Absolute 90s and UCB UK�all stations found on the multiplex system.

The new sites slated for this year are Holcombe Down (near Teignmouth), Saddleworth (near Oldham), Dunkirk (near Faversham) and Sunderland. The 2015 sites will be announced at a later date.

Digital One''s coverage is currently 87% of the population of the UK�and this will increase after the new sites are brought on-line.
