Serving Our Audience


Saorview is Ireland's free digital television service.

It brings you all your favourite Irish channels, crystal clear pictures, great quality sound, on-screen programme menus and digital teletext - all with no monthly subscription. 

Saorview is a digital terrestrial television (DTT) service which means the signal is broadcast from transmission masts across the country and is received through a standard TV aerial paired with either a Saorview Approved set-top box or a Saorview Approved TV.

Saorview is owned and managed by RTÉ. It carries both RTÉ and non-RTÉ channels and services. The infrastructure required to transmit the Saorview service is operated by RTÉNL (a wholly owned subsidiary of RTÉ).
