On 2 February 2016 Global announced that Heart Extra would launch on national DAB on 29 February.
The station broadcasts a presenter-free music sequence from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. every day. Outside this time, it simulcasts sister station Heart London programming, including the breakfast show hosted by Jamie Theakston and Emma Bunton. The initial presenter lineup also included Jenni Falconer, Mark Wright and Jason Donovan.
On 14 March 2017, Heart Extra was removed from the Sky and Virgin Media TV platforms in favour of new sibling Heart 80s. Heart Extra continued to broadcast over DAB and online as before.
Heart extra Xmas
Heart Extra was rebranded as Heart extra Xmas, a pop-up Christmas music service with the slogan 'Turn up the festive feel good!', during November and December 2016. The pop-up festive offering was Global's successor to the prior Smooth Christmas service. Heart Extra Xmas ran again at the end of 2017. From 3 November until 27 December 2018, Heart Extra has again been temporarily rebranded as Heart extra Xmas.
