RTE to launch six new digital radio channels on trial

first seen here first published here

RTE to launch trial station on DAB.
We ask, are these services not going to co exist online? Whats the budget for these stations. What is the likelihood that they will exist beyond the trial.? where is the interactive dimension to this?

Will this trail go the way of RTE community radio and RTE local radio? I believe radio one needs an opt out service on digital but this could carry the MW/LW/Digital Europe feed. 2FM could do with a youthful current affairs opt out but a Classic Hits station RTE Gold, where is the need for that? Local radio can do this, sounds like an all day Late Date.. Digital Sport will be popular more UK & Irish horse racing needs coverage, I wanted to see more of this on the renewed LW service but alas its just a relay of FM for most of the week.
