Singapore



 
Although Singapore had the distinction of being the first country to achieve 100% coverage of DAB, there are no longer any DAB transmissions in the territory. The broadcaster MediaCorp ceased its transmissions in December 2011. Rediffusion operated a subscription service that used DAB+. Those transmissions have also ceased. Special receivers were required for Rediffusion's encrypted services. Occasionally, one or more of these services were noted transmitting in the clear. It is most unlikely that any future free-to-air services would use "original-flavour" DAB. Therefore, Wohnort recommends that anyone in Singapore considering the purchase of a digital radio should await any future developments or to be sure that any radio bought would receive DAB+.

Block 9B: 204.640 MHz
Operator: Rediffusion
Sites: Bukit Batok
On-Air: 2005 - April 30th 2012

This ensemble has ceased.

Rediffusion was originally a cable operator but latterly broadcast subscription radio services by means of DAB+. Special receivers were necessary to decode the Conditional Access transmissions. Rediffusion ceased broadcasting on April 30th 2012, having served Singapore by cable and DAB+ for 63 years.

There is a short, nostalgic presentation of photos and audio about the original service on The Straits Time website.
