Can I listen via DAB digital radio outside the UK?

It is not possible to hear the BBC World Service, or any other BBC channels, on a DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) digital radio outside the UK. This is because the digital multiplex which carries the channels within the UK does not extend outside the country.

The BBC World Service is currently transmitting digital short- and medium-wave DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) broadcasts for the Benelux region, some of which can be received in neighbouring parts of Germany and France. There are no immediate plans to extend DRM transmissions further into Europe.
