London, 16th April 2015: Pure announces its full support for Norway’s commitment to a digital radio migration and FM switch-off date. The Norwegian Ministry of Culture announced today that national FM networks will be switched off during 2017 to complete a transition to digital radio.
Paul Smith, Pure’s general manager, says: “As one of the original digital radio pioneers, this announcement is music to our ears and gives clarity to consumers and the radio industry in Norway allowing us to push ahead our digital radio plans with certainty. We look forward to working closely with radio industry stakeholders in Norway to ensure a smooth transition by continuing to stimulate the market with new and innovative products.
”This announcement, along with the recent confirmation of the winner of the bid for the UK’s second national digital radio multiplex, and the ongoing progress in Germany, shows that there is a huge amount of momentum and appetite for digital radio across multiple countries.”
In addition to its wide range of domestic digital radios, Pure is also working on expanding its in-car digital radio range and will be working with Digital Radio Norway to ensure there are accessible in-car adapters in the market in readiness for digital radio migration.
