38I DONT HAVE AN FM RADIO IN MY CAR WHAT CAN I DO?
The film audio is broadcast via an FM channel, given to us by license with Ofcom, (in the same way a radio station like Radio1 uses 98.9). If your radio cannot pick up an FM signal then we would not be able to get the audio to your car in this way. If your DAB radio console has an AUX input (for you to plug a smart phone/ipod into), then one quick solution could be to use a FM radio APP downloaded to a smart phone, and plug this into your car audio system. The phone APP picks up the signal then via an aux cable places that sound through your car system speakers. This however may cause a delay in the sound which then may not sync to the film. If you have a portable FM radio then this should work as a solution.
