RTÉ 2XM is an Irish radio station broadcasting on DAB only, as part of RTÉ's digital radio lineup. It plays rock, indie, metal and nu metal. The station is considered RTÉ 2fm's 'sister' station. It carries no advertising or DJs, just music and identification.

Of the digital-only stations, it is the first to have carried live content, with music from the Oxegen festival during July 2007 and the Electric Picnic and PlanetLove Summer Session festivals during September 2007. This continued in 2008 with the PlanetLove Winter Session in February.

It was added to the DTT pilot in late October 2007. It was officially launched on December 1, 2008 as part of RTÉ's boutique of digital radio stations. 2XM and the other additional radio station will soon be available to 85% of homes in Ireland before year end[1].

RTÉ 2XM WebTV

2XM WebTV debuted online during the RTÉ coverage of the Oxegen 2008 music festival on weekend of 11 July-14 July 2008[2]
