Saorview Connect now includes the new RTÉ Player, offering you a great choice of box sets and catch-up TV content with many programmes available in High definition. 

The new RTÉ Player has been developed to offer greater choice of online TV content to today’s TV audiences, who expect to be able to view their favourite TV shows when and how they want. Together with Saorview Connect’s catch-up TV guide and Spotlight recommendations service, the new RTÉ Player gives Saorview viewers great entertainment choices with no contract or monthly bills. 

In order to view RTÉ Player, customers should ensure that their Saorview Connect boxes are running the latest software, currently version 20.19. Boxes that have not been upgraded to the latest software will display a message when a customer tries to access the RTÉ Player or RTÉ programmes via the catch-up TV guide.
