About Rediffusion Singapore
Rediffusion Singapore pioneered cable radio in Singapore, and was Singaporeâ€™s only subscription radio service and the 1st in the WORLD to broadcast on DAB+ (Digital Audio Broadcasting Plus). Founded in 1949, Rediffusion Singapore was a subsidiary of Broadcast Relay Services
(Overseas) Ltd, based in the United Kingdom, until the late 1980s when the British-owned Rediffusion conglomerate was broken up. In the 1960s and 1970s, the stationâ€™s dialect programmes enjoyed a strong following, with many
households fitted with the Rediffusion radio box. When the nationwide Speak Mandarin Campaign was launched, Rediffusion was required to stop all dialect programming by 1982. Facing the ban and increased competition from free-to-air radio, subscription plunged. By the 2000s, Rediffusion had become a shadow of its glorious past. In April 2012, Rediffusion was under receivership and went off air on 30 April. In June 2012, Rediffusion was bought over by Eduplus Holdings. Under this new management, Rediffusion will relaunch in early 2013 with fresh content and a new identity, with its rich history forever honoured and preserved.
This app is the first product to be introduced by Rediffusion Singapore, with the goal to preserve its history in the most innovative way.
