Usually + is deployed in Paris, Marseilles and Nice on a total of 14 multiplexing at the conclusion of a first call to the candidatures. Two calls relating on the whole to 30 multiplexings are in hand in particular in Lyon, Lille, Nantes, Rouen, Douai-Lens, Strasbourg, Béthune, Valencians, Mulhouse, Dunkirk, Le Havre and Saint-Nazaire.

The Council held from July 27th to October 4th, 2017 a public consultation on the acceleration of the local deployment of Usually + and on the methods of organization of a metropolitan call to the candidatures. It received 47 contributions, representing the whole of the components of the radiophonic sector (editors and their trade unions, distributors, providing diffusion, operators of multiplexing, manufacturers of receivers).

At the conclusion of this consultation, the Council notes that the deployment of Usually +, that it is on the local scale or a metropolitan scale, is supported by a vast majority of contributors, that they are editors services of private radios or other actors (operators of multiplexing, diffusers, distributors). The public service also expresses its interest for the diffusion of all its antennas in Usually + since certain conditions would be met. For as much, this deployment still causes interrogations, even an opposition of certain private radiophonic groups. Lastly, the manufacturers of receivers pointed out the need for having a calendar of deployment, if possible fast, and for respecting it.
