ABC and SBS Launch Digital Radio Services on the Gold Coast

Australian government-owned broadcasters ABC and SBS have announced that audiences on Queensland’s Gold Coast will now have access to a range of new radio stations with the launch of digital radio (DAB+) services.

ABC and SBS join commercial broadcasters ARN and SCA which launched DAB+ stations in 2022, including simulcast FM stations Sea FM, Triple M and Hot Tomato, as well as community stations 4CRB, Juice, and Radio Metro.

Listeners will be able to enjoy the full range of ABC Radio services including Double J, ABC Jazz, ABC Country, ABC Sport, triple j Unearthed, and ABC KIDS listen.

They will also be able to tune in to SBS Audio services including language programs on SBS Radio 1, SBS Radio 2, SBS Radio 3, SBS Arabic24, and SBS South Asian, as well as music stations SBS Chill and SBS PopAsia.

ABC Head of Audio Ben Latimer said, “The addition of DAB+ will improve access to the ABC’s wealth of audio services for audiences on the Gold Coast. These audiences will experience high-quality audio across our range of popular digital audio brands like Double J, ABC Sport and the ABC Kids listen.”

SBS Acting Director of Audio and Language Content Pamela Cook said, “With the latest Census data showing nearly a third of Gold Coast residents were born overseas, the launch of DAB+ radio means more Australians can now enjoy SBS Audio’s full suite of over 60 language services. This provides news, community stories, entertainment, plus a new SBS South Asian destination channel.”

According to the broadcasters, digital radio delivers better sound quality than traditional AM/FM radio and doesn’t suffer from the same types of interference or static issues.

There is no need to manually tune or search for channels, audiences can simply select their favourite radio station from the alphabetical station list.

Digital radios also have small screens which can display program-related information, such as ‘now playing’ song title and artist details as well as local news headlines, weather details, and traffic updates.

Audiences can find more information about DAB+ on the ABC Digital Radio Help Page here and the SBS Audio How Do I Listen Page here.
