GAAGO will be operational from 14 June. Until then, all games will be available worldwide, free-of-charge, on the RTÉ Player - starting with Tyrone v Down on Sunday.

That's a good price that under-cuts the cowboys currently owning the streaming market. Hopefully there's proper HD streams and archive access coming too - imagine being able to thumb through the last 30 years of AI finals. It'll be a must-have for any GAA supporters outside the country then.

Or if you are away on holidays and don't want to miss a game, a tenner would be worth it. It would be great if they'd develop an app for AppleTV and the likes.

I haven't looked into this too much, but I'm assuming the RTE stream in Ireland will still be free? That being the case, it's fairly straightforward to create a VPN so you end up with an Irish IP address and can watch the matches that way. I'm not sure if there are free Irish VPN services out there but a quick google search threw up a free 3 day trial. In a worst case scenario you can usually pick up a monthly subscription to a VPN provider for €10 which might let you take in a few matches rather than just one.

I've done this before on the iPad when on holidays and it works perfectly

I've used VPNs before, but not everyone would know what they are and might rather just pay the tenner instead of mucking around with something that may or may not work, the free ones I'm talking about.

The next thing the GAA need to sort out is data roaming prices  :P

This problem has come up before. You need to contact you broadband service provider, who should in turn contact RTE to resolve.

Why do people sign up to Internet providers without the least interest in their geocoding policies and then blame RTÉ?
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Because most people wouldn't know what geocoding is until it becomes a problem.

So does this mean the Cavan v Armagh game is being streamed by RTE?

Nice job today by rte and the gaa.  The price is fair and it looks like they have done their homework.  Hopefully the streams work well and we don't have spinning wheels and frozen screens.

I think they will have a lot of subscribers so I hope they make sure the service can handle the demand. 
I used to be indecisive but now I'm not too sure.

Not as good as free-to-air but an improvement on $20/game in the pub.

I await the uproar from the "grassroots are being fleeced" crowd with great interest.
