RT and TG4 on Freeview HD in Northern Ireland

The Digital TV Group (DTG), the industry association for digital television in the UK, has welcomed the joint UK and Ireland government statement on the transmission of RT (Raidi Teilifs ireann) and TG4 (Teilifs na Gaeilge) services in Northern Ireland, which will see a new Irish multiplex carried in Northern Ireland using the technical standard at the core of the UKs Freeview HD service.

The DTG has worked closely with the UK Department for Culture, Media and Sport, Department for Business Innovation and Skills, Ofcom and the Irish Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources to ensure that the widespread availability of the Irish language television station TG4 in Northern Ireland continues post digital switchover.

In addition to carrying TG4, this multiplex, which will be part of the UK digital terrestrial television (DTT) system, will carry RT 1 and RT 2. It is hoped that this will further increase the coverage of these channels in Northern Ireland, enabling approximately 90 per cent of the population in Northern Ireland to receive their services on a free-to-air basis, either through overspill or via the new multiplex.
