TG4 and RTE go on air in the north

Bookmark and Share

Two of the most popular broadcasters from Ireland will become available to the households in the North following an agreement between the Irish and British governments.

As from 2012, when the digital switchover has been completed, residents in Northern Ireland will be able to receive broadcasts from the popular channels RTE and TG4, while in return viewers resident in Ireland will be able to receive content from the BBC.

This is a good deal for viewers, as they win no matter which side of the border they live, although there has not been an actual date set for the digital switchover.

According to government officials from both the UK and Irish governments, this agreement will help with the smooth transition of the digital switchover.
