New transmitters launched

Today (Wednesday 26 November) further transmitters for the Now Digital Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire multiplex were launched.

The addition of Chepping Wycombe and Hemel Hempstead to the four existing transmitters will significantly improve the coverage of the local multiplex in High Wycombe, Beaconsfield, Amersham, Hemel Hempstead, Watford, Kings Langley, Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted, along with sections of the M25 and M40 motorways.

It takes the indoor coverage of the Herts, Beds and Bucks multiplex from 67.69% (720,109) of households to 88.60% (915,600); and from 81.49% (1,205km) of major roads to 89.50% (1,324km).
