In den letzten Tagen wurden Gerüchte in die Welt gesetzt, dass das Digitalradio DAB(+) in Schweden auf Grund eines Parlamentsbeschlusses abgeschaltet werden müsse.
Tatsächlich wurde nur das Migrationsprogramm mit einem FM-Abschaltdatum gestoppt.

Die Richtigstellung hat WorldDAB als PDF veröffentlicht (siehe obigen Link):
Digital radio has again been on the agenda in Sweden. The Government decision, taken last summer, to delay the introduction of digital radio is not affected. However, the Liberal Party´s spokesperson on Cultural Affairs has argued in Parliament that Sweden should proceed with DAB+.
In June 2015, the Government decided not to proceed with the transition from FM to DAB+ which had been proposed in a report published in December 2014. This followed the publication of a report into digital radio by the National Audit Office in April 2015.
On Wednesday 3rd February, Swedish Parliament discussed digital radio – with the Parliamentary Constitutional Standing Committee (KU) issuing a formal response to the Government's letter about the National Audit Office's April 2015 report into digital radio.
As a result, the decision taken last summer remains unaltered. However, both the Government and the Committee have said that this decision may be reviewed, depending on the development of digital radio in the rest of Europe - especially in neighbouring Norway.
The Constitutional Committee issued the following statement:
"As the government argues, it cannot be ruled out that the issue of the digitization of terrestrial radio may arise again in the future. The Committee therefore believes that it is good that the government intends to follow international developments.”

What happens now in Sweden?
The government continues to follow developments in Europe. Swedish Radio cannot, for the time being, launch DAB +. Private radio has received licences (October 2014) to broadcast 21 national channels in a digital terrestrial network, but has asked for permission to delay the launch.
Mats Åkerlund, digital radio coordinator at Swedish Radio comments:
“Nothing has changed in Sweden since the Ministry of Culture's decision last summer. The plan for digital radio is stopped and the Government decision has been confirmed by Parliament.
However, the recent discussion in Parliament shows that it is wrong to say that digital radio is dead in Sweden. All political parties agree on the importance of following developments in Europe. Norway begins the transition to digital terrestrial radio in less than one year, so it will not be so long before we can evaluate the results.”
Die heftige Reaktion von Regierung und Parlament auf den FM-Abschaltplan ist verständlich, wenn man die heutige Ausgangslage betrachtet:
- 60 Tsd. verkaufte Empfangsgeräte (viele ohne DAB+)
-.SR-Mux in vier voneinander isolierten Gebieten (Abdeckung von 35% der Bevölkerung)
- ein privater Mux über drei Sendestandorte im Großraum Stockholm
