Kiss prepares listeners for DAB switch
In an article on the Kiss FM website, the Bauer Media-owned station explains it is making the move to improve UK coverage. Explaining the change in more detail, the website states: "Basically, instead of broadcasting via local DAB transmitters across the UK, this new channel will mean you can tune in to one KISS station all over the country."
Most local multiplexes label the station as "Kiss", but the replacement national service is labelled "KISS".
Kiss began transmissions on the national Digital One multiplex just after Christmas. Although the previous transmissions on local DAB multiplexes are limited in coverage, they have been in stereo. The new national service is only in mono, which has drawn criticism from some listeners on Twitter, Facebook and internet forums.
