Irish expats will now be able to watch more TV from back home, after an announcement of a new service from RTÉ.

Irish TV channel RTÉ has launched a global online Irish television service for international audiences. The new service, RTÉ Player International, now available on iOS (the Apple operating system), will provide 500 hours of free programming, and will also offer paid-for content, including just-aired television shows. The app for RTÉ Player International will be free to download and will give access to 100 hours of free content, including some of Ireland's most popular shows. Full content will be available for a monthly subscription of EUR8.99 (USD9.93).

Kevin Bakhurst, Managing Director of RTÉ News and Current Affairs, said: "The launch of RTÉ Player International ... not only greatly strengthens our offering to international audiences, providing them with a new way to connect to home, but also serves as an important new international platform for Irish content creators."
