 Saorview Information

SAORVIEW is Ireland’s first free digital television service. It brings you all your favourite Irish channels, crystal-clear pictures, better quality sound, on-screen programme menus and digital teletext - all for free.


Analogue Switch Off (ASO) is when analogue television transmission in Ireland will be turned off. This will happen in late 2012. Like the rest of Europe, North America and many other countries, television broadcasting in Ireland is switching from analogue to digital transmission.
The EU has mandated the end of 2012 as the final date for ASO in Europe, by which time Ireland needs to have launched a replacement digital transmission system to ensure all Irish audiences can continue to access free-to-air television.
SAORVIEW is the digital free-to-air television service that will replace the analogue system which has been in operation since 1962.

Digital Switch Over (DSO) Information Campaign

The switch from analogue to digital is both national and EU policy. The Government department with lead responsibility is the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources (DCENR).
In August 2010, Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources established a Digital Switch Over Steering Group, with additional working groups, to manage the switch from analogue to digital television.
