RTE Player Interantional

Why you can’t watch RTE Player and RTE Sport outside Ireland?

Actually you can! Based on your IP address RTE will determine which TV shows they can offer you.  Popular shows like Fair City are available on RTE International version worldwide.  Syndicated shows such as EastEnders, Home and Away, Neighbours and UEFA Champions League are only available on the Irish domestic version of RTE Player.

GAA fans can also watch live matches and highlights outside Ireland. GAA GO is the official streaming service (Live and On Demand) for Gaelic Games outside of Ireland, a pay-per-view partnership between GAA and RTE Sport.  Obviously so long as you have an Irish internet service then you can watch GAA free live streaming and do not need to pay for GAA GO.
