When will the DAB multiplexes be turned back on in the Manchester area? Wouldn't it have been better to have the new muliplexes in place before turning off the old ones? Or is that me showing a bit to much common sense?

andrew sambrook:

MXR North West is not coming back. The licence period came to an end, the licence holder handed it back to Ofcom and nobody else wanted it. There is nothing else that Ofcom can do under those circumstances apart from scrap the licence.

The spare frequency will probably be used for the Manchester multiplex, which is currently sharing a frequency with Sheffield This will improve reception on both the Manchester and South Yorkshire multiplexes.

The only new multiplex for Manchester will be the national multiplex (commonly referred to as Digital Two). This is expected to be advertised in early 2014, so probably on-air in 2015.
