We are delighted to announce that Classic FM is now available to listeners in digital quality, in the Channel Islands.

Local DAB digital radio comes via DAB digital transmitters, which first went live from Les Platons in Jersey and Les Touillets in Guernsey in 2021, bringing a much bigger range of radio listening.

Classic FM is now available on DAB+ for listeners in Jersey, Guernsey, Herm, Sark and Alderney. You will need a DAB+ enabled device to pick up this signal.

Islanders will need a DAB+ enabled digital radio, or you can continue listening online at or via the Global Player app, on digital TVs or via smart speakers.

The Channel Islands’ DAB network broadcasts all services in DAB+, which is an upgraded and more efficient version of DAB.

How do I know if I can get Classic FM on DAB+?
