novanation is a terrestrial and internet 24/7 dance music radio station, broadcasting both in digital DAB+ and online streaming. It is marketed as Australia's first 'digital' dance station in an effort to differentiate itself from analogue stations such as Kiss 90FM, Wild FM and Fresh 92.7, which were established in 1994, 1996 and 1998 respectively. Fresh 92.7 secured a permanent community licence in 2002. While Kiss 90 missed out on a permanent community licence, some of the Kiss 90 team evolved the concept and created Kiss FM Australia in 2005. Kiss FM Australia is now operating on several low power narrowcast licences across Melbourne and in some regional areas through Orbit FM.
novanation is now only available in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane on DAB+. It used to be on DAB+ in Adelaide and Perth but is was replaced by Smooth Digital in 2013. The station is accessible anywhere online.
