Irish DTT gets off the ground
03 Nov 10 -

Ireland has now officially launched its digital-terrestrial TV platform, giving access to DTT services to about 90% of the country’s population.

The digital platform currently offers simulcasts of public channels RTÉ One and RTÉ Two, commercial channel TV3 and Irish-language channel TG4. Saorview, the Irish version of the UK’s Freeview, will be launched next year ahead of a planned digital switchover at the end of 2012.
