UPDATE: Earlier this evening, it happened again. SEN 1116 had the AFL Nation coverage of the Adelaide Crows vs Brisbane Lions match, while SEN Fanatic+ (SEN FAN) had different coverage of the same match with the title Crows Nation.

Is ABC Newcastle coming to DAB+?

That would be a welcome surprise if it is.

It would be good to have in Newcastle and Wollongong.

Given the commercial stations don’t appear to have shown any interest here, I can’t imagine the ABC doing so either.

Usually the commercials go digital first eg. Gold Coast.

Except for Launceston.

You’d really want Central Coast as well in that case for continuous reception from Sydney to Newcastle

Priceline Radio is now on air in Sydney on Nova’s ‘NN’ channel.

The format is 80s, 90s and now. Similar to the old 97.3 :sweat_smile:

Must be an extension with the Coles/Nova partnership as Coles owns Priceline.

It’s a direct competitor to CW Remix.

Priceline is actually owned by Wesfarmers, who despite previously owning Coles, no longer do. Coles is now a separate stand alone company.

Good point. However it’s looks like it’s another collaboration between Wesfarmers and Nova.

Also Wesfarmers has a large stake in the separately listed Coles, so they are not completely independent of each other.

I would prefer to have IGA Radio on DAB as they pull out some real rarities. It must be a centralised service as I hear news updates on there.

Priceline radio? Is this really what we’re using DAB spectrum for? Dear god they need new entrants…

If you don’t like it then you don’t have to listen to it.

The music is quite good, some rarely played tracks combined with some mainstream songs.

The format is quite good as there currently isn’t an 80s, 90s and now format on DAB.

In Brisbane, NN has disappeared off multiplex 2.

SEN Fanatic has appeared on multiplex 1

Nova Nation hasn’t disappeared on DAB, it’s still on air in Sydney.

Does Brisbane still have Nova Nation and Price line Radio?
