Digital radio infrastructure completed in the Netherlands

A press release from Harris Broadcast and Broadcast Partners today announced that the DAB+ (Digital Audio Broadcasting) infrastructure has been completed in The Netherlands. The Dutch government has set 2017 as a deadline for a national switch-over to digital broadcast.

The system uses IP (Internet Protocol) delivery rather than cable, which offers great signal delivery flexibility, according to the notice.

The website reports that some regional stations in The Netherlands might switch to digital by next summer.
