ntl: ENHANCED FM RADIO SERVICES
|Whether or not you subscribe to ntl's
new DigitalPlus cable television service, or you still have their old
analogue service you should be able to take advantage of their Enhanced
FM radio service.
Currently, the service is not actually all that 'enhanced' as several of the services once provided, which were sourced from sub-carriers on the Astra analogue service have now been discontinued on that platform.
Most notably missing from the line-up are BBC Radio Five Live and the AM variant of BBC Radio 4
The stations provided will vary according to franchise area but typically the service is like the one in their Herts./Beds. franchise:

FM service you must be an ntl: cable tv subscriber.
