METRO FM would love to broadcast over the entire country, but as it stands, METRO FM has the maximum number of transmitters legally allowed by ICASA. As a national radio station at the SABC Radio Station transmitters are allocated in certain areas only. These transmitters have a designated wattage strength which allows a specific footprint over a given area only. By law, we are not allowed to exceed this allocation. You can call ICASA explaining your needs and hopefully they can help you: 011 566 3000/3001.

Streaming Issues:
• Elaborate what seems to be the problem when accessing the stream.
• Take a screen shot of your error.
• Locate the ‘Alt’ and the ‘Print Screen’ Keys on your keyboard.
• Press and hold the Alt key and then press the ‘Print Screen’ key.
• Open a Microsoft word document or any other graphical software.
• Paste the screen shot into this window by right-clicking on your mouse and selecting the ‘paste’ option.
• Save your document and email it to streaminghelp@sabc.co.za along with your contact details.
