From Wikipedia: RT is funded partly by the licence fee, the remainder of the funding is provided by commercial advertising, because RT is funded partly by the licence fee it shows considerably fewer advertisements than most other channels available in Ireland. The channel is also available online through RT Live and the international version of RT Player. Unlike many other national broadcasters, RT One was late to begin broadcasting in the mornings, and 24-hour transmission only began in the early 1990s. - en.wikipedia.org en.wikipedia.org link icon read more about RTÉ One on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

Hello could you please tell me what equipment I need to be able to watch RTE and other Irish broadcasts in North Wales?

Richard:

It rather depends on where in North Wales you are located.

You need to have a direct line-of-sight, free of hills and mountains, to one of the RTE transmitter in the Republic of Ireland and at sufficient height above sea level to see beyond the normal sea-level horizon. You will also need a high gain aerial mounted as high as is reasonable and carefully aimed at the nearest RTE transmitter having an uninterrupted view from your location. You may need an aerial amplifier as well if the signal strengths are low, the ideal is between 50% and 85% for SD and between 60% and 85% for HD. Lower strengths will be unreliable and higher strength will cause pixillation or break-up of pictures and sound - or even total loss!

Note also that signals may vary with the tides, as the surface of the Irish Sea rises and falls the effect on the signal tranmission path causes a variation in the attenutation caused by the sea.

A full post code will help to judge whether that is feasible or not.

I recently bought a Freeview HD TV and have all channels except RTE channels....as I live in the Ballyclare area is this down to my aerial picking up Divis transmitter and not Black Mountain or Carnmoney Hill? Is this an easy change and will I loss other channels if I do get the aerial moved?

To help you decide we really need a full post code so that we can check what the signal reception conditions are like at your location.

Chunky: According to Digital UK, Black Mountain is only slightly further away in almost the same direction and you should have good reception of the NI mux without moving your aerial. Try a manual tune of C39 from your TV's menu.

Arden Pollock: According to Digital UK, Black Mountain in only slightly further away from you than Divis and in almost the same direction, so you should be able to get good reception of the NI mux without needing to move your aerial. Try going to the manual tuning option in your TV's menu and select C39.

@Briantist: My first post above didn't appear after I pressed submit (and reloaded the page a couple of times), so I retyped my reply and both appeared when I submitted the second time.

StevensOnln1: Thanks Steven

Just to clarify, I do a manual tune on channel 39 for freguency 618MHz....how does that work? I thought the RTE channels were on Channels 51/52?

To be honest I did something like this last night to no avail after reading it on the net
