RTÉ Pulse is an electronic dance music station from Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ), Ireland's national broadcaster. It broadcasts on the RTÉ DAB Multiplex and Saorview, Ireland's free to air DTT service in Ireland, online and on UPC cable television. It plays a varied mix of dance music, with a small number of shows covering RnB. It started broadcasting in April 2008, but had an official launch alongside its sister services on 1 December 2008.
Originally started as a jukebox service with no presenters, it now carries live and pre-recorded shows from a number of Irish DJs, including Mo K, Will Kinsella, Orla Feeney and international DJs and brands like Ministry of Sound, Hed Kandi Paul Oakenfold, Ferry Corsten and Judge Jules.
The service uses RTÉ facilities from all around the country and overseas. There are regular weekly live shows from the Cork, Limerick and Belfast studios. The service regularly broadcasts live from the RTÉ or BBC studios in London.
The schedule is designed to be stranded in its approach to fulfilling its remit of representing all genres of dance music.
Sunday's scheduling draws very much from the eclectic styles of the genre.
