PS. A Firestick and an iptv subscription works every time at a fraction of the cost... head on over to the Non gAA section and there’s plenty of explanations!

that nonsense about Connacht team of the championship

Jesus didn’t know they had that on. I can’t wait for the Leinster team of the championship

Jesus the amount of halfwits online would amaze you with this geoblocking saga ... it’s Croke Park’s fault for selling the rights to Sky apparently!!

If you tried to explain it to them their heads might explode!!

Sky don’t have the rights for champions league games but they get blocked too

Yes because BT hold the rights to show CL games in the UK... RTÉ even though available in the UK have to have these geoblocked as well as they are only allowed to show these games in Ireland.

The issue is that the geoblocking “department” went home before the Sunday Game so forgot to turn it back on again after the WC had finished.

Stop speaking sense. Its all a anti-nordie conspiracy by GAA/Sky/Murdoch.

Yeah, that was gas! You could hear the sniggers off camera from Plámás! Has to be one the silliest lists ever!

Are SKY blaming RTE though?
That's how I interpret the statement, i.e. they weren't given the right list.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

There is some shite spouted on this issue, i see Niall O’Donnaighle from SF is gonna raise this matter in the Seanad and this is “digital partition”, this must be about the fifth time I have seen someone from SF talking about the issue and not having the first clue about it.

It is digital partition. There's absolutely no excuse for the live games and for the Sunday game not to be available in 32 counties on whatever platform you want. The Rte player being geoblocked is particularly galling

The RTÉ player is not geoblocked from NI, except for certain soccer games and drama series. It is not geoblocked for GAA. if it doesn't work it because your ISP does not locate you in NI, which is not RTÉ's fault, it is the GAA who sold the GB rights to someone else. But people continually bollock RTÉ and never think of changing ISP, which is their own responsibility.
What has "Niall O’Donnaighle from SF" done to ensure that IP numbers are properly geocoded in NI?

And they get BBC free which people in the 6 are paying £147 a year for.

Your point is?

The Sunday game was geoblocked this weekend in NI, that's a fact Whether it was because of an ISP or not doesn't matter a damn to me. If RTE wanted they could put in a workaround very easily to stop that from being an issue. Allow people to register and enter their postcode for example.

How come the BBC cannot show proportionally a similar number of games to RTÉ then?

You are the person choosing the ISP.

People would register with false postcodes from every part of the world, in that case.

Can you name an isp available in the north which isn’t geoblocked? Is anybody out there using one? Bt is my provider, I’m very happy with them but it is geoblocked unfortunately.
