Access to RTÉ/TG4 Digital confirmation welcome – McElduff
Sinn Féin Culture Spokesperson, Barry McElduff has welcomed confirmation by Communications Minister Pat Rabitte and his British counterpart, Ed Vaizey that TV viewers in the North will be able to receive TG4 and RTÉ One and Two on Freeview following digital TV switchover on October 24th.
Barry McElduff said:
“I welcome the announcement that RTÉ One and Two as well as Irish language station TG4 will be accessible to viewers in the North after Digital switchover on October 24th. I am sure that Gaelic sports and Irish language enthusiasts in particular will be heartened by this confirmation.
"The fact that providers north and south have joined forces to form a not-for-profit venture which will be responsible for the installation of the new infrastructure is the latest example that all-island cooperation and coordination works. It is also a demonstration that delivery of the terms of the Good Friday Agreement is mutually beneficial."
