OFM goes digital on OpenView HD


OpenView HD launched Central South Africa’s most loved commercial radio station, OFM, on Friday.

This means the whole country can now tune in to OFM via the music channels on your DStv decoder.

OFM plays a mix of today’s hits and yesterday’s classic hits while providing content that is engaging and entertaining. The station has the fourth biggest radio webpage in South Africa and the highest incidents of time spent listening to radio in South Africa. OFM is Central South Africa’s largest independent radio station catering to a loyal listenership across the Free State, North West Province, Northern Cape and Southern Gauteng.

Nick Efstathiou, General Manager at OFM, says they are excited to be able to extend the station’s content offering farther than their terrestrial broadcast area of Central South Africa. "We have a well-balanced radio product with a great mix of music, news and sport. Our presenters create memorable moments in their shows each and every day; now we can share this with so many more potential radio listeners."

According to Ziyanda Mngomezulu, Channel Acquisitions at Platco Digital, the aim to launch OFM is to enhance the listeners’ experience by providing them with excellent digital audio quality from their favourite radio station anywhere in South Africa.
"Our viewers will be spoiled for choice with radio content from OFM. They now have the opportunity to easily access Central South Africa’s best and loved radio shows which have a strong local identity. The platform will further boost the reach of the station from regional to national influence," added Mngomezulu.

OFM can be found on channel 604.
