    RTE to launch Freesat service for British-based listeners

    By Noreen Bowden | August 28, 2008

    RTÉ radio listeners in Britain, who were recently disadvantaged when they lost their medium wave service, will be able to listen to Radio 1 on Freesat starting next month.

    Freesat is a digital satellite television service. The service is free after the purchase of a receiver that attaches to a television, and a satellite dish; receivers cost around 50 pounds and up.

    RTÉ is also launching RTÉ International, which will also be available through Freesat, in the coming months. RTÉ International is a television channel aimed at the Irish living in Britain.

    It was previously announced that RTÉ’s other stations, Lyric FM, Radio na Gaeltachta and 2FM, would also be available on Freesat.

    See more about the service on the Irish Post.
