RTÉ and Sky TV have signed a long-term partnership agreement to increase the number of channels and ways in which RTÉ's content can be accessed on Sky's platform in Ireland.
-
RTÉ One and RTÉ 2 are already available through Sky here, with the new agreement resulting in more RTÉ channels and services available to Sky customers.
-
In the coming months Sky subscribers in Ireland will be able to access a range of RTÉ content through RTÉ Player's availability via Sky on Demand.
-
As part of the agreement, RTÉ News Now and RTÉ One + 1 will be added to the Sky platform, with RTÉ One HD becoming available to Sky customers at the same time.
-
Commenting on the announcement RTÉ Director General Noel Curran said: "As Ireland's national public service media, RTÉ aims to serve all audiences. We do this through our 25 distinctive services.
-
“It has been a key policy initiative for RTÉ in recent years that those services be available and distributed as widely as possible through key partnerships that recognise the value for both parties.
-
“We're delighted to have concluded this new partnership with Sky which gives significantly more access to RTÉ services and programming on Sky for audiences in Ireland," Mr Curran added.
