More tune in to digital radio

Digital radio listening is growing in Northern Ireland, but is much lower than in the UK as a whole.

A 5% year-on-year increase was recorded in the share of radio listening to digital radio in Northern Ireland, reaching 35% of all listening hours by the start of 2018.

Despite this, digital radio listening here, as a share of all radio listening, remained far lower than the UK average of 51% at the start of 2017.

Half of all adults here now own a DAB radio, up from 23% in 2013, again lower than the UK average of 64%.
