“RTÉ.ie continues to be the leading Irish media website”, said Conor Mullen, Commercial Director, RTÉ Digital. “We are constantly enhancing our offerings, and further building out our strategy for users at home and abroad to access RTÉ anywhere and everywhere. Mobile traffic is a phenomenal growth area for us, with over 54 million page impressions resulting from RTÉ Mobile Apps alone in May, clearly demonstrating we are meeting our audiences’ needs in providing up-to-date content when they want it”.
With approximately 6.5 million streams requested in May alone, there is also a growing appetite for audio and video across a whole spectrum of devices, from desktop, mobile, to connected TV. Mullen continues “We have just launched an improved RTÉ Player App, which will deliver an even better user experience. A new version of the RTÉ Player which has significant improvements in usability, design and functionality will also launch later this month. Delivering what our audiences want is key to the site’s success, and its popularity is borne out in the numbers that ABC has audited”.
