The Radio Authority awarded the DAB licence to NOW Digital on October 2, 2003. The licence was advertised on May 16, 2003, and by the closing date of August 26, 2003, only one application from NOW Digital had been received.


The Radio Authority only advertised the licence for the Cambridge-area after an e-mail was sent to the organisation to make them aware that the frequency spectrum was available in Cambridge for a Multiplex's availability to be able to launch.
