Do I need a different radio to receive DAB?

To listen to DAB you will need a digital radio. You will not be able to receive digital radio broadcasts on an analogue radio. However, you can also listen to digital radio via some satellite, cable and Freeview television services, and via a PC and some mobile phones.
