Norway to terminate FM radio

As pointed out by the AV Club, this year is ragnarok for FM radio in Norway. The country has been planning the end of the system for a number of years and the disbandment begins its roll out now. Norway is the first country that had a large scale FM system to terminate the service. The FM radio system will be replaced with a Digital Broadcasting Service. Interestingly, two-thirds of the country's population disapproves of the changeover. It is possible that this switch may prompt other countries to follow suit.
