BBC digital radio coverage can now be received on the Isle of Man
The transmitter provides a DAB digital radio service in Douglas and Castletown and will cover 50% of the population.
It will be the first time islanders will be able to receive digital radio.
The television signal to homes in the Isle of Man is to switch over fully from analogue to digital by the end of next year.
Mark Friend, controller of multiplatform and interactive BBC audio and music, said: "The BBC has been committed to DAB digital radio since its launch and we are delighted to announce our plans to expand coverage further.
"We hope listeners in these areas will now discover the benefits and additional choice that digital radio offers."
Channel 4 will be opening a transmitter next year, offering an additional eight to 10 new radio stations.
