Kuwait Welcomes More DAB+ Services

Is launching new digital radio stations in Al-Metlaa

On Sunday Feb. 19, Kuwait’s Minister of Information Mohammad Al-Jabri inaugurated new DAB+ digital radio stations in Al-Metlaa, located north of Kuwait City.

According to reports, the minister said the launch of these services was part of a project that began a couple years ago and is motivated by the “New Kuwait” 2035 development strategy plan.

Kuwait had already initiated DAB+ digital radio broadcasts in 2014, when the country’s Sultan Telecom, a subsidiary of The Sultan Center Group of companies, launched its first of two radio stations as part of an agreement with the Ministry of Information.
