The RPG Cable Radio, is seeking a tie-up with British Broadcasting Corp. If BBC agrees to the tie-up, listeners of the channel will get programmes in English and Bengali live or recorded on “radio on TV”. RPG Cable Radio was a unit of HMV FM till June 26, 1998. RPG Cable Radio was recently renamed Radio Snap.

RPG Cable Radio was a unit of HMV FM till June 26, 1998. From that date, the FM service went off air following a Delhi High Court order restraining private FM broadcasters, but the cable radio remained. The Radio Snap team includes Debraj Roy, Satinath Mukhopadhyay, Bratati Bandyopadhyay and Madhumanti Moitra, all accomplished FM comperes who have been with the service from its launch in 1994 to 1998.
