Homepage/timetable here:


Yes, that means Kadazan, Dusun, Bajau and Murut language radio broadcast on Sabah VFM (the local RTM radio channel, possibly the only six-language radio channel in the world) can now be heard anywhere in the world, as long as you have internet connection.

In November 2007, audio streaming via the Internet was activated for Sabah VFM.

Timetable (daily, all local time of course):
* Kadazan (Tangara dialect): 5:00am – 7:00am & 2:00 pm – 4:30pm. Detailed timetable.
* Dusun (Bundu-Liwan dialect): 7:00am – 8:30am & 9:00 pm -11:00pm. Detailed timetable.
* Bajau: 2:00am – 4:00am & 4:30pm – 7:00pm. Detailed timetable.
* Murut: 4:00am – 5:00am & 7:00pm – 9:00pm. Detailed timetable.

The other 2 languages are English and Chinese. Malay has its own dedicated channel.

First impressions: very smooth, no stuttering, even from within the very slow SabahNet. But we’ll have to see how it goes as more people use this service.
