Saorview channels: Republic of Ireland DTT

Last reviewed: 18/02/2019

These are the digital terrestrial TV (DTT) channels available in the Republic of Ireland, operated under the brand name of Saorview. To benefit from the full features of Irish DTT, a Saorview receiver is required.
  • Channels with a yellow background are broadcast in HD. Services are distributed on two different multiplexes from transmitters across the Republic of Ireland, most aerials should be able to receive both multiplex signals.
  • Viewers in Northern Ireland and the far west of Wales may be able to receive these channels via signal overspill. Not all Freeview receivers (especially non HD) will be compatible, and if accessed via a Freeview box, these channels will usually appear in the 800-899 channel range, as allocated by your receiver.
