Why is it not possible to receive Jazz FM on either Freeview or Virgin Media? Are there plans to include this station in future?

Why is it not possible to receive Jazz FM on Freeview? Are there plans to include this station in the near future? It's a great channel and we listen to it all the time on DAB, but it would be great to also receive it on Freeview TV.

Ray: It isn't possible to receive it on Freeview because it isn't carried on Freeview.

Just bought a shiny new Humax for Freeview with fantastic sound! Jazz FM is my choice of DAB station in the kitchen, but it would be great to have it in the sitting room! Come on Jazz FM and Freeview, let's have it!

Isabella Ferguson: Jazz FM broadcasts using DAB+ so you will need a radio that supports DAB (if it has the green tick mark it will definitely work, although there are many other radios not carrying the tick mark that also work with DAB+).

Last nigh, close to 21:00, I listen to the most fantastic song by the Steeple singers. I didn't have my
Shazam app on so I lost the name of the song. I am nowOTT with the Steeple Singer. I've been at it since 09:00 and still don't find it. Can you help me, it was on a lady's program that came before China Moses( my favourite). You'll save my life if you do.

Jeff W:
The request for jazz FM to be on freeview tv selection has been requested for over 10 years and still 'nothing' is happening. You have a plethora of Rick/soft rock/classic rock/ rap / but no JAZZ...why? Why is it left out?
There is certainly enough interest.
