If we’re being completely honest, this information could easily have been added as an addendum to the previous “ITV Player and 4OD stations are now live” post. Then again, we’ve heard nothing of this happening until now so we thought we’d give it its due attention.
Left in the digital dark for so long, Irish PS3 users turning on their shiny black monoliths this morning will be greeted by a new RTÉ Player icon in the TV section. Not just a link to the site, the player is an XL version modified to work on TVs.
RTÉ is like the BBC in Ireland. It’s a statutory body of the Irish government but actually shows more American TV than Irish content. And more British content. And Australian content. Let’s just say that every now and again something appears with Irish people talking funny.
Check out what the player looks like below. And it must be kismet, but who’s that gurning right back at us? Yes! Westlife! Ireland’s greatest export since bankruptcy!
