Ó Donnghaile welcomes Sunday Game apology

19 June, 2018 - by Niall Ó Donnghaile

Sinn Féin Seanadóir Niall Ó Donnghaile has welcomed an apology from Sky TV after viewers in the north were blocked from watching the ‘Sunday Game’ on the satellite platform.

Niall Ó Donnghaile said:

“I welcome the apology from Sky TV for incorrectly blocking the ‘Sunday Game’ from being broadcast to satellite TV viewers in the north. 

“Viewers rightly aired their frustration due to being met with a blank screen on Sunday night. This only added to growing frustration among people in the North due to the constant blocking of RTE programmes, mainly sporting events,  via satellite.

“RTE and Sky must now move to put processes in place to ensure that the blocking of the ‘Sunday Game’ and other programmes never happens again.”
