From Wikipedia: As well as playing older music, the station plays several modern film scores. It had been operating a trial programme on its AM frequencies in Wiltshire and Bristol, testing audience reaction to a regular drive-time programme of popular classical music. Time Warner agreed to back the project but was prohibited under then current UK law from owning more than a 25 interest. - link icon read more about Classic FM on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

Classic FM on Freeview - biggest digital joke so far. 64kbit/s MONO - WHAT ??? Digital Radio is continuing to be the current biggest con-trick in the UK, (after SKY in my opinion). Compare the quality of services elsewhere in Europe(Germany in particular)
DIGITALBITRATE : Digital channels bitrate Satellite, Dtt and more - -
The site is a bit techy but shows compromise after compromise features in current British broadcasting, TV and Radio all in the name of quantity versus quality. .

Mike Savison: If you dont like the birate via Freeview (which most people dont bother using for radio anyway), then use the web. Frankly, considering Classic FM's limited and uninspiring playlist, a search around the web for classical streaming stations (of which there are possibly hundreds) would be a great choice.

MikeB - yes, that's a good alternative and perhaps the internet is making all broadcasting obsolete. I am involved with community radio(Tempo FM) and locally, and obviously, Band 2 FM is our major outlet but we have an internet stream available and where there is internet, we can be heard, effectively leap-frogging DAB. I am sure this is the most effective alternative to DAB. It's certainly easier and cheaper to setup for what you get.
P.S. the 'S' instead of 'D' was a touch of dyslexic fingers.
