RTÉ News Now

Run under Irish public service broadcaster, the channel is a 24×7 news media networked broadcasting nationwide as well as having online availability around the world. The multilingual broadcasts are offered in English, Irish and Irish Sign Language (ISL). Upon the launch in 2008 RTÉ News Now was available only for the online visitors. However, after a couple of test trials in December, 2009, the news brand is tunneled in the train services in Dublin and neighboring sites after a contract between CIÉ & RTÉ; the Sky News prior to that was the only of its kind to offer that kind of services. The free to air facility is been accessible since November 2010 to more than 98% of domestic households supplied by Saorview – the National DTT of the country. The mix of mainly news and current affairs is leader in Irish media providing comprehensive and cost effective news feeds to the Irish republic. The broad range of creative content and high quality programming is reassured by the use of tech, commissioning apps & platforms like RTÉ.ie, RTÉjr app, RTÉ Player, RTÉ Radio Player and RTÉ Aertel (Teletext service). The other siblings of the RTÉ News Now include RTÉ One, RTÉjr, RTÉ One +1 RTÉ Two HD, RTÉ News Now, RTÉ Aertel Digital and other fm and radio services.
