Sky have apologised after last night’s episode of The Sunday Game was blocked out for some viewers in Northern Ireland.

The highlights show on Sunday evening was unavailable to those on the Sky platform in the north due to what they said was an error on a list of programmes to render available or unavailable.

A statement from RTÉ Sport earlier described it as "very disappointing" and added they had spoken to Sky to investigate the issue. 

Sky issued their response this evening.

It read: "We are sorry that our viewers in Northern Ireland were unable to watch the Sunday Game last night.

"This occurred due to an issue with the list of ‘black outs’ we were provided with for that evening, which meant that the Sunday Game was incorrectly blacked out.

"We have since spoken to RTÉ and taken steps to ensure this will not happen again."
