The Minister for Communications Eamon Ryan today announced that 90% of the population are now able to receive a digital television signal.
The new service, called Saorview, broadcasts RTÉ ONE, RTÉ Two, TV3 and TG4, more channels are said to be launching soon.
Ryan has said the analogue signal (picked up by your aerial) will be switched off at the end of 2012, and the spectrum reallocation will be a €500 million "digital dividend" to the state over ten years. Over 1 million viewers currently use the analogue terrestrial television service in their homes.
