A new Irish online TV service has launched, allowing users to watch streaming Irish channels live from their computers and mobile devices. AerTV is run by Magnet Broadband, which previously ran Magnet WebTV, a special register to view site.
AerTV has a more simplified user interface and more channel options. Users can watch the following channels:
- RTE News Now
- RTE jnr
- Dail TV
As well as this impressive list of options, users can also watch France 24 and Russia Today as well as a special music channel “AerTV music”. AerTV music features Irish musicians and shows Live from The Button Factory and The Grand Social.
Users can share the shows they are watching with dedicated Twitter and Facebook buttons. Magnet customers can upgrade to an extra sixteen channels for €3.99 a month.
“This is a great service and long overdue. Finally, people can watch all the main Irish TV channels live on their mobiles, tablets and PCs for free and without even having to log in.”
Philippe Brodeur, director of AerTV
Magnet CEO Mark Kellett says that the current selection of channels and live streams is only the beginning for the service.
It should be noted that the service works as long as viewers are connected to the site via an Irish IP address.
