Important News For Digital Radio Listeners!
We've made some changes to the way Xfm is transmitted on digital radio in London. As a result of these changes you may have to perform an 'autotune' or 'rescan' on your digital radio to ensure that you continue to receive Xfm. If you don’t know how to do this, please consult the instruction manual that came with your radio.

How can I listen to audio clips or watch video on the site?
If you are having trouble viewing our live video streams or hearing the audio feed, there is likely to be a simple solution to the problem. The most common problem is that your computer does not have the correct software installed. All the software required is completely free, and generally installed on most modern home PCs by default. There's a list of links to the relevant software below. Xfm is proud to be a founding member of the UK Radioplayer

Do we offer other streaming formats?
At present, no. This is because we have to encode all of our streamed content for every format and every quality level, and it's a lot of work. We have opted to offer streams that the majority of users will be able to enjoy, though we are constantly reviewing this situation.
