RTÉ announces that it is now available "online on the internet." Eugene Murray RTÉ Group Head, Programme Services outlines plans to include a live transmission of 'The Late Late Show' over the internet.
The Director General of RTÉ Joe Barry says, "We are very conscious of the treasure trove that we have here in RTÉ. Our libraries are packed with extraordinary material. The additional digital activity will of course be producing CD roms etc."
A number of RTÉ programmes already had their own web sites on the internet in 1996. The launch of 'RTÉ Online' meant that these existing sites were now included as part of one easy-to-use RTÉ web site. Internet users worldwide now had access to several RTÉ Radio programmes, news, sport and entertainment.
As part of 'RTÉ Online''s inaugural day, 'The Late Late Show' was webcast and Gay Byrne took a live telephone call from an Irishman living in Arizona who was watching the programme over the internet.
At the launch RTÉ declared a commitment to increasing the access to multimedia, text, audio and video content as bandwidth became more available.
