Television Services for and about Ireland
Where can I access TV stations that are of interest to Irish people living overseas?
There is a demand among Irish communities internationally for access to television from Ireland. Public and private providers are responding to this:
- RTÉ and the GAA have launched GAAGO to expand global access to GAA Games.
- Most of the TV stations operating in Ireland have an online playback service – some of the content provided on these is available internationally. RTE Player, TG4 Player, UTVIreland Player, TV3 Player
- RTÉ have launched their RTÉ Player International service on the iOS platform – see their FAQ for more information
- In addition, there are a number of companies that are creating programming for, and about, the diaspora and these can be accessed either on line or in some cases: Irish TV; An Lár and Today’s Ireland.
- Some channels are also available on Roku, a streaming service in the United States.
