I have been asked why My Generation isn’t on DAB.
There are a number of costs that a service provider will incur to broadcast on a DAB multiplex.
Multiplex capacity fees vary from multiplex to multiplex. However, as a rule of thumb, the cost of carriage for a mono (64 kbit/s regular DAB) service on a non-London multiplex is around £3,500 to £6,000 per month.
To broadcast on a London multiplex generally costs double.
For a national multiplex capacity would likely cost in excess of £30,000 per month.
In addition, there may be some additional costs of connecting a service from your studios to the multiplex centre. This cost would vary according to your location and the relevant multiplex centre but could cost around £500 per month.
There is a one off application fee of £250 to apply for a DSP licence, and an annual licence fee of £100, not to mention royalty payments to PPL ans PRS and the hardware needed to broadcast.
Need I say more??

With Alexa, just say “Alexa, play My Generation Radio” and apparently there we are!
