Rai Radio 5 Classica is a radio channel, owned and produced by the Italian State broadcaster RAI, which broadcasts uninterrupted classical music without commercials. Until August 2015 it was known as Rai Radio FD 5.
The channel is distributed via:
- the cable radio service Filodiffusione, which was launched in 1958 by RAI and SIP (now Telecom Italia)
- the Hot Bird satellite using DAB technology
- the digital terrestrial DVB-T network (available only in Italy)
