The RTÉ Player is available on Sky's On Demand Catch Up TV service from today.

The development is part of a long-term partnership between RTÉ and Sky aimed at increasing the availability of RTÉ services on the Sky platform.

Sky customers will be able to access RTÉ programmes for free through the RTÉ Player catch-up service for up to seven days following their transmission on their Sky+ HD or Sky Q set top boxes.

“We are delighted to bring RTÉ Player, the number one broadcaster video on demand (VOD) service in Ireland to Sky homes," said Aoife Byrne, Director of Content & Products with RTÉ.

"RTÉ Player is an increasingly important part of the way viewers enjoy RTÉ’s content on-demand and this partnership further underlines our commitment to ensuring RTÉ Player is made more widely available for audiences to watch when and where they want to,” she added.
