Moorlands DAB multiplex terms and conditions

All services broadcast via the Moorlands DAB multiplex are subject to Moorlands DAB Ltd  standard terms and conditions, which are available on request.

Invoices must be paid in full before broadcasting can commence. All services must be appropriately licenced by Ofcom. It is the service providers responsibility to ensure that they comply with the relevant licence conditions and other legal requirements such as copyright licencing.

We reserve three 48kbps slots on our multiplex for Ofcom licenced C-DSP services, as required under our own licence. This C-DSP capacity shall remain reserved regardless of whether or not this capacity is fully occupied.

Capacity will first be allocated to services that expressed an interest to be a service provider on our original Ofcom application, provided they launch on the multiplex by 31st July 2023. Reserved capacity will then be allocated on a first come, first served, basis. Once the three C-DSP slots are occupied, then any subsequent C-DSP services will be on unreserved capacity.

DSP services shall pay the applicable DSP tariff. Capacity is allocated on a first come, first served basis.

In the event that the multiplex becomes oversubscribed, then stations wishing to join will have their interest kept on file. As capacity subsequently becomes available, Moorlands DAB Ltd, will, at its own discretion, select a service that it feels will enhance the range of digital radio services available in our area, and prioritise those that meet our community ethos.

We will provide reasonable technical support at no additional cost and assist with stations joining the multiplex.

All slots are subject to availability and require a signed contract before services can be added – our full terms and conditions will be provided on request.
