I need to buy a new portable radio. The only thing I will use it for is listening to matches. Does Essex radio broadcast our games on DAB or just 95.3

thanks

You can't listen on DAB. I've tried loads of times. The reason is that the BBC Essex commentary is also used for Blues Player (or whatever it's called now) so they aren't allowed to stream it..

DAB via a radio is fine, over the internet wont work.

I have listened on DAB for years and bought a DAB tuner specifically for it, well up until this season when I dont use the radio now, pretty sure its still on there though.

The only issue with DAB is that BBC Essex have one DAB channel which will either be us or Col U. Generally if we are away we are on DAB, and if at home its FM.

ahhhh, I was hoping for a consistent answer . It makes sense that at best it’s only away games- but that’s what I wanted it for
