Sky TV customers can now watch their favourite RTÉ shows wherever and whenever they want with Sky Go
Sky TV customers from today can enjoy even more on demand content wherever and whenever they want with the addition of RTÉ Player to Sky Go and Sky Q apps, available on their laptop, tablet or mobile devices*.
The Sky Go & Sky Q App gives Sky TV customers access to up to 70 live entertainment channels and thousands of hours of on demand content on their devices at no extra cost. RTÉ Player joining the Sky Go service means that Sky customers can now catch up on a range of RTÉ’s most popular shows while on the go, including Fair City, The Late Late Show, RTÉ News, The Ray D’Arcy Show and Nationwide.
Ann-Marie MacKay, Director of Customer Growth, Sky Ireland, said, “The addition of RTÉ Player to Sky Go, joining TV3 and UTV Ireland’s players to our on-the-go service, gives customers even more of the best TV in a way that’s easy, flexible and fits into their lifestyles. So find your phone or tablet, log in, and catch up with your favourite shows wherever you are with Sky Go.”
Aoife Byrne, Director of Content & Products, RTÉ said, “Following the launch of RTÉ Player on Sky set top boxes in July this year, we are delighted to build on our partnership with Sky to bring RTÉ Player to Sky Go users. Mobile viewing is a key growth area for us with 55% of RTÉ Player streams delivered to mobile. The addition of RTÉ Player on Sky Go ensures that our offering is made even more widely available for audiences to watch when and where they want to.”
The move is part of a long term partnership between Sky and RTÉ to increase the number of channels and the ways in which great content can be accessed on Sky’s services in Ireland and follows the launch of RTÉ Player on the Sky set top box in July this year.
Since its launch in 2011, Sky Go is getting better and better, giving its customers the very best in TV shows, movies and sport to watch wherever they are at home or out and about, live and on demand. The introduction of RTÉ content and future updates are all part of Sky’s continued commitment to innovating on its leading mobile platform, which will put both live and on demand TV at the heart of Sky Go.
