Fair enough, I know that DAB is not as good as FM, but I did not know that the Freeview radio quality is better than DAB. In any case, I have no desire to see these services disappear and I also think that removing radio from iPlayer is shortsighted. Just trying to understand the BBC's rationale. Perhaps there is no well thought out strategy, just penny pinching as Tell suggested.Yes it does. Freeview provides a more decent bit rate (and therefore quality) than DAB which is just low quality sh1te (and in many cases mono).
