Description of App

Watch the best of programmes broadcast on RTÉ Television with the RTÉ Player App.

You can watch selected programmes live from RTÉ One, RTÉ Two and RTÉ News Now plus catch up on a wide selection of programmes broadcast on RTÉ Television for up to 21 days after transmission.

Social sharing features allow you to share programmes via email, Facebook and Twitter. You can browse programmes by name, category, date or latest. You can save programmes as a favourite and pick up on a programme where you last viewed.

The RTÉ Player App supports AirPlay so you can watch programmes on the big screen using Apple TV.

While most RTÉ Player content can be accessed through the app, some programmes may not be available due to rights restrictions. We are continually looking to clear rights and add new programmes.

The RTÉ Player App uses streaming technology which means that you must be connected to the Internet in order to watch programmes. The app will automatically adjust video quality based on the speed of your WiFi connection.

The RTÉ Player App is available worldwide from the App Store.

We hope you enjoy using the RTÉ Player.

So I have a few TV apps on my phone that I like to go to when I like to listen to TV. I ran across this app today, I think it is neat to listen to what is going on in other parts of the world.
