Heart Extra Xmas switches on Christmas hits as Heart Extra 'closes' until 27th December

Thursday, 9th November 2017

Heart Extra Xmas is launching with Christmas pop and rock songs with a festive feel at midnight on Thursday 9th November 2017 and is available on national digital radio. Available across many parts of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the station launched alongside several other local DAB radio pop-up stations focusing on Christmas pop favourites.

The station popped up on DAB digital radio last year on 15th December, but in 2017 it's around for an extra week - from 9th November until 11:59pm on 26th December, when Heart Extra will return. In the meantime, look for Heart Extra Xmas (or HeartXms) in your DAB station list instead, to hear 24-hour 'round-the-clock festive pop tracks.

It'll disappear sooner than the Christmas turkey, though, on 26th December, after you've returned from the Boxing Day sales.
