P6 will be the channel for programs in languages other than Swedish while P2 in Stockholm will be an all-music channel. Those who want to listen to non-Swedish programming in Stockholm will no longer have to switch channels, as everything will be on the same frequency of 89.6 MHz.
For the first time SR International’s programs in Belarusian will be carried on FM.
Programs in Finnish, Meänkieli, and Sami as well as programming from the Swedish Educational Broadcasting Company will also be available on P6. The schedule will be complemented by music from the SR Världen channel.
“It’s been annoying for those who want to hear programs in their native languages having to switch channels,” says Channel Supervisor Elle-Kari Höjeberg. “By bringing all the different language services for Stockholm to P6, and making P2 a purely music channel, we’re creating a clarity that benefits all of our listeners.”
For those who prefer alternatives to FM radio, P6 programming is also available on-demand online.
Note: These changes apply only to our Stockholm transmitters. Outside of Stockholm, programs in minority and immigrant languages, as well as from Swedish Educational Broadcasting, continue on the national P2 network.
