- A wider choice - Up to four programs can be transmitted on one frequency, making multilingual programs possible. At first programs will be simulcast in analogue and digital so that everyone has a change to migrate over to digital radio at their own convenience;
- A robust signal that is "green" and energy efficient. You will be able to save up to 50% in energy;
- Is it a mission to find the right frequency? Digital radio (DRM) provides automatic tuning by station name, no longer by frequency;
- An emergency warning and alert system will be available to warn you about possible disaster;
- You will not only be able to hear radio, but also see it. Text messages with an added option of images and animation will form part of your listening experience;
- No more guessing who the next presenter will be - an Electronic Program Guide (EPG) will provide information about what's on - now and next. You will be able to search for programs and schedule recording; and
- You will be able to tune in to TPEG/TMC Traffic Information to assist you in your journey home.
Please note that trial transmissions commenced on 1 July 2014 and will take up to 12 months. It will take 1 to 2 years after completion of the trials before Radio Pulpit and Cape Pulpit will be able to switch over to digital radio.
