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

Saturday, 10th November 2018

Heart Extra Xmas is launched with Christmas pop and rock songs with a festive feel at midnight on 3rd November 2018 and is available on national digital radio. Available across many parts of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the station launched before several other local DAB radio pop-up stations focusing on Christmas pop tunes.

The station is broadcasting 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 collapsed from the Boxing Day sales.
