Since 2014, WRP has been offered free-of-charge to Parisians over the airwaves in digital quality, but only if they own a DAB radio. An old FM/AM radio will not work. Only certain radio sets and in-car stereo systems can play those new stations, in addition to existing FM stations. You must request the DAB option from your car dealer when buying a new car, or upgrade your existing system. When buying a new radio for your home or office, make sure it displays the DAB logo.
France, like most European countries, is switching from FM to DAB+, also called RNT or Digital Radio. The technology used is the same throughout Europe: DAB+ (Digital Audio Broadcast)
Here is a picture of the dashboard of a Hyundai i40 model playing WRP.
