We see that one local group (which has now morphed into a registered charity!) is amazingly still seeking fiscal sponsorship and business backing, for what must be a futile attempt to set up a 'community television station' although it has been made crystal clear by the regulatory authority Ofcom, there are no current plans for this to happen.
Meanwhile Ofcom have released their 7th Annual Report on the progress of digital radio in the UK.
This report is Ofcom’s seventh annual publication on the progress of digital radio in the UK.
This report primarily uses data from RAJAR and Ofcom’s own consumer research; it serve as a reference tool for industry, stakeholders and consumers.
As an indication, however, the database of stations available on TuneIn (an online service which streams live radio content through a browser or app), included over 100,000 internationally accessible stations in November 2016.
Radioplayer, a partnership set up with the BBC and UK commercial radio, currently carries over 400 stations (including some community stations) through its website and app.
