Network provider UPC has started a pilot programme for the broadcast of DAB+ radio broadcasts over a coaxial cable network. Around 1,000 UPC customers in Lucerne are involved in the initiative, which aims to establish the technical possibilities and customer reception for an eventual DAB+ roll-out via cable networks. Consumers can receive DAB+ signals on a digital radio, DVB-C capable TV, UPC's Horizon HD Recorder or UPC's Mediabox DAB + device.
