In Northern Ireland, BBC Radio Foyle, broadcast from Derry/Londonderry is on the Northern Ireland local DAB multiplex, which already carries BBC Radio Ulster. BBC Radio Foyle broadcasts with 128kbps bandwidth.
In South Essex, Kiss is being removed from local DAB, in line with similar changes across the UK since Kiss started broadcasting as a national station on DAB. Listeners who access the 'local DAB' version of Kiss will see scrolling text on the display about the changes. Affected listeners should reset their DAB presets. The national version of Kiss is in mono, but some listeners in South Essex should be able to receive the stereo signal version from London DAB.
Across the UK, the BBC's National DAB multiplex will be reconfigured to allow extra space for BBC Radio 2 Eurovision, which will broadcast between Thursday 21st May and Sunday 24th May inclusive. As a result:

- The Daily Service from BBC Radio 4 LW on Friday 22nd May will not be carried on BBC DAB.
- BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, 2 and 6 Music will run on a slightly lower bitrate of 112kbps stereo. BBC Radio 2 Eurovision will appear in 64kbps mono.
