2. ON-AIR in Paris via DAB+
Since 2014, WRP has been offered free-of-charge to Parisians over the airwaves in CD quality, but only if they own a DAB radio (Digital Audio Broadcasting). An old FM/AM radio will not work. Most radio receiving devices now sold in France are DAB compatible. By law, all new cars sold must offer DAB reception, but you should double-check when ordering the car. WRP is easy to find: We are the last station in the list on screen.
Why isn’t WRP on FM? In Paris, the FM band has been at capacity for years. There is simply no room for new stations. That’s why DAB was introduced and is currently being extended to the whole country. Eventually, all radio broadcasting in France will be done via DAB and FM will be abandonned.

3. ON-AIR in other locations via DAB+
If you live or drive between Menton and Cannes, including Nice and Monaco, you can tune in to WRP from 7pm to 11pm by selecting “Freq Mistral” in the station’s list.
As of Jan 2022, WRP will be available in Normandy from a new transmitter in Caen on DAB+, with call letters WRNC. WRP has also applied to other DAB+ licenses in cities where many English speakers live.

4. APPS for Smartphones
WRP is also available on any smartphone thanks to our apps. Creating and maintaining apps is expensive. This is why we have two versions of the WRP apps:
The free app gives you access to both our stations in low audio quality (32kbps, mono). It will work very well in all areas, including those with poor 3G network coverage and inside the Paris underground metro system.
The paid version will allow you to stream both stations in high audio quality (128kbps, stereo). Choosing the paid version is an easy way for you to support WRP. Thank you for considering this purchase.
Here are the links to our apps, depending on your operating system:
