Did I hear right. Eir sports channel is now going to be available on Virgin. If that is right I would imagine there is a bit of depression in TG4 offices as there will be a serious drop in their viewer numbers for the PRO14 games.

While it's good to have the access to Pro 14 rugby to more people I really don't get the hate for TG4 rugby*.

*Not necessarily here but fairly commonly expressed

Apart from it being in Irish they big up rugby at all opportunities like RTE when they had it often didn't.

Not all TG4 games are also on live on Eir Sport, so if you want to watch all the games TG4 is more than useful. I don't mind watching the games on TG4, there is the obvious language barrier which is not a major issue for me.

A repeat of the Scotland v France games is available on Freesports at 10 am on Sunday, 25th Aug.
Freesports is free to air AND it's on channel 435 on your (well mine anyway) Sky Box.

BTW there's a good chance that any game being broadcast by Premier Sports, in Neill_m's list above will be repeated on Freesports.

You can add all the ITV channels to an Irish Sky Box alright, but as you say no pause or record. Boards.ie have an excellent thread with all the tuning frequencies for these and other channels

You may get the blue screen treatment and be unable to watch it given how the tv rights are for the tournament.

Unless Freeview have changed their technnology, then channels broadcast in the clear won't be geo-locked
