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:

To take advantage of the ntl: enhanced FM service you must be an ntl: cable tv subscriber.

To get connected you should either contact your local ntl: franchise on 0800 052 2000 or get some coax cable, an F-type connector and connect the FM socket of the ntl: wall socket to the aerial input of your FM receiver.

ntl: charge 10 for the FM hook-up, wheras a standard F-type connector can be purchased for a couple of quid from a local aerial contractor, DIY store, Maplins or Tandy.
