AMSTERDAM�The Dutch public broadcasterNPOhas plans to expand its DAB+ offerings over the next four years.

Currently, NPO has 10 programs available via DAB+ including Radio 1, Radio 2, 3FM, Radio 4, Radio 5, Radio 6 Soul & Jazz, Alternative 3FM, Radio 1 Extra, FunX and Radio Top 2000. The plan is to eventually expand the number of programs to 15.

Earlier it was announced that the NPO transmitters would gain a power increase, but that has not happened as of yet.

Whether or not these plans can actually come to fruition is in question. NPO first needs permission from the Minister of Education, and it�s quite likely a consultation will be needed with commercial radio stations as well.� There�s no doubt that there will be complaints, according to Radio.nl.�
