Jacob, I don't think you can, hopefully if the Sky Channel 0211 and DAB Radio are a success they will extend it to freeview. :?

With the Sky platform and DAB, I'm not sure it would every be considered cost-effective to be on Freeview as well. And I think competition for places on Freeview is fairly fierce.

As we are aimed at a fairly niche UK audience who are either serving or ex-Forces, or those who want to keep in touch with family and friends in the Forces overseas, rather than the entire UK audience, I think that could be considered over-kill.

I should reiterate, too, perhaps, that this is a trial on DAB. There are no guarantees that it will be become permanent, though we dearly hope so to close the circle of connectivity.

I wouldn't dream of asking you exactly how 'grown-up' you are (!) but the service is aimed at the majority serving 18-35 age group; those over that age tend to prefer BFBS Radio 2 which sadly isn't available in the UK. Thanks for giving it a listen though - if you persevere you may find the shows which appeal more to you.

Sad day - I'm 'too old for BFBS'. I'll keep trying though, as it is the number 1 preset on both the DAB radios in the house.

I am glad it's on; it can only do good for the forces' image amongst the target audience.

right pain, can't get DAB reception at work and the website is blocked...typical...I'll have to stick to 'REAL FM' which gets forcebly fired at us during the day to keep us awake.

BFBS Radio 2 not likely to be on in the UK, at least in its present incarnation, due to the content we use from the BBC, such as the Today programme, sport from 5 Live etc.

No worry, the programming is still good. Thanks for reply.

Thanks - tell all your friends! And don't forget to catch the BFBS Radio 2 programme Sitrep on Thursday in Simon Guettier's show.
