Irish Language station TG4 is to re-launch its online television service later this week, providing both live and catch-up programmes (available for one month) to Irish domestic and international viewers.
There are some limitations, such as not having the rights to show movies or programmes with English language content, however the new system will fill those gaps with other content so you’ll always get a live stream of TG4. It will find archived programmes and replace the content seamlessly.
The technology behind the service is also improved on earlier versions, meaning that if you have high-speed Internet the download speed will adapt and you’ll get better quality video.
This is a good step forward and a welcome development for everyone interested in the Irish language, both at home and abroad.
