Saorsat Receiver & Dish Kit Features

SAORSAT is the name given to the infill free-to-air satellite television service put in place by RTÉNL to deliver Irish television services to the 1% to 2% of homes that are not covered by the SAORVIEW Digital Terrestrial Television service.

The RTÉ services on SAORSAT areexactly the same as those on SAORVIEW. The full list of TV channels is: RTÉ One, RTÉ Two HD,TG4, RTÉ News Now, RTÉjr, and RTÉ One+1 & Radio channels.

However, please note that SAORSAT doesn't currently carry TV3 or 3e. (last updated 11/04/2018)
