Kiss DAB retune in Swindon and West Wiltshire

Dance music station Kiss FM UK will be removed from local DAB multiplexes serving Swindon and West Wiltshire from the end of the month.

Ofcom has approved the removal of Kiss from the Swindon and West Wiltshire local DAB at 00:01 GMT on 31st January 2015.

The transmission of Kiss on local DAB dates back to a time before Kiss was distributed nationally on DAB digital radio. This change is part of a process of withdrawing Kiss from local multiplexes as carriage contracts expire.

Since the 17th January 2015, the label for the service in the Swindon and West Wiltshire area has been changed to "Kiss - retune", with listeners advised to switch over to the service being broadcast nationally on DAB digital radio. Presets will need to be changed to point to the remaining Kiss service, labelled "KISS" on national digital multiplex Digital One.
