About RTÉ Radio 1 Extra

Listen online to the internet radio of RTÉ Radio 1 Extra live here, on IrishRadioLive!
RTÉ Radio 1 Extra is RTÉ Radio 1’s digitally distributed sister station, launched in 2008 as RTÉ Choice, and arrived to its current name in 2013. RTÉ Radio 1 Extra is in the ownership of Raidió Teilifís Éireann which is Ireland’s National Public Service Broadcaster.
RTÉ Radio 1 Extra’s programme structure is the thought-emphasized extension of RTÉ Radio 1’s broadcast. So less music, and more talk builds the schedule. No funny talks or chit-chats, the main aspect of the service - as it reveals itself as “Quality speech from Home and Abroad” - to broadcast deeper conversations, debates, speeches about real topics, real issues of Ireland and the World. Past, present and future - so history, politics, documentaries, environs, business, technology, sports, arts, religion and much more widens the perspective. For being the most open-minded, RTÉ Radio 1 Extra brings talk programmes not just from Ireland, but also from international broadcasters like BBC (UK) and NPR (USA).

RTÉ Radio 1 Extra is not available on the traditional analogue way, but several digital options like DAB, Digital TV, and online distributions are available. We recommend the online radio stream.

DAB: RTÉ Radio 1 Extra (Ireland)

DigitalTV: Virgin Media: Channel 920/940

RTÉ Radio 1 Extra 's slogan: “Quality Speech from Home and Abroad”
