Ministry of Culture of Norway has announced a national FM-switch off, beginning 11 January 2017 to complete the transition to digital radio.
Norway will be the first country in the world to decide upon an analogue switch-off for all major radio channels. With DAB and digital radio, listeners will be provided with more radio channels and greater diversity in content.
The DAB-coverage in Norway now exceeds FM-coverage. DAB provides Norway with 22 national channels, as opposed to five channels transmitting nationwide on FM.
