Bhutan Broadcasting Service goes online
March 5, 2008 at 3:04 pm
The Bhutan Broadcasting Service (BBS), the country’s national broadcaster, has launched an online radio service. BBS Radio introduced the Internet service on Thursday to mark the 28th birthday of King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck.The online service is available for 15 hours a day, from 0000-1500 UTC. It can be accessed via the BBS website: www.bbs.com.bt.
Andy Sennitt comments: The live stream was working fine when I checked at 1200 UTC. It’s only 32 kbps, so not extremely high quality, but bearing in mind that not so many years ago this station was considered an exotic catch on shortwave, it’s amazing to think that it can now be heard at the click of a mouse anywhere in the world.
