IBC Tamil to launch on London DAB

A new South Indian radio service is set to launch on DAB digital radio in London in the coming weeks.

IBC Tamil has previously broadcast on multicultural station, Spectrum Radio before it was removed off the platform. According to industry sources, IBC Tamil failed to make payments on time during its contractual period with Spectrum Radio. It will however run full-time on digital radio.

IBC Tamil has been on air for over 11 years and was started as a community radio station for the UK Tamil community.

IBC Tamil will replace Q Radio on London DAB multiplex 3. A launch date is yet to be confirmed.
