Notes:

Coverage is measured differently for DAB and FM. DAB coverage is based on households while FM coverage is based on the area covered by FM signals.

Distribution: DAB = Digital Audio Broadcasting (digital radio). DAB+ is a further development of DAB. Radios that receive DAB+ can also receive DAB, but not conversely. Analogue = radio transmitted in the FM network.

Regional channels consist of NRK's regional transmissions. The number of local channels is based on information from the Norwegian Media Authority. Data applies to the previous year or the latest data available.

NRK Vær is transmitted in the coastal areas from the Oslofjord to Northern Norway, in three regional versions. The channel NRK Folkemusikk is transmitted 24 hours a day as web radio and in the DAB network in NRK Super's vacant transmission time at night .
