Kiss Fresh on Digital One national DAB multiplex

Kiss Fresh has taken a national slot on DAB digital radio, the station is now broadcasting on the Digital One national DAB multiplex using a bitrate of 80 kbps mono.
As part of the move on to a national platform, Kiss Fresh will focus on new tracks from 7 am, with specialist programmes now starting at 11 pm.
Previously, Kiss Fresh was only broadcast in some areas on local DAB services.

Kiss and Kiss Fresh now reach around 90% of UK listeners on national DAB, with Kisstory reaching around 76% via the Sound Digital (D2) multiplex.

As to what will happen to the Kiss Fresh slots on local DAB has yet to be announced. Any extra capacity on local DAB multiplexes, will be welcomed by some in the radio industry, who have made recent appeals to Ofcom to make more DAB capacity available.
