Q: What is Irish Digital TV?

Irish digital TV also know as Saorview is the name given to Irelands new "Free to Air" Digital Terrestrial TV service. The service officially launched in Ireland on the 29th October 2010. It replaced the old analogue TV signal, which was turned off turned off on 24th Oct 2012

Q: What Channels are Available?

See the "List of Channels" tab for a full list

Q: Will I Need a New TV Aerial?

Maybe but possibly not. A good rule of thumb is that if you are currently getting good reception on the 4 Irish channels (especially TV3 & TG4) on an existing aerial, chances are you will not need to invest in a new Aerial. Indeed the equipment and installations are generally much simpler than with analogue systems where in Ireland we had historically the complication of VHF aerials & diplexers in certain parts of the country

Q: Will I Need a New Television?

You will need either

  • A digtal terrestrial receiver (Miniumum spec: MPEG4 & HD) to work with your existing TV
  • A Saorview approved (or at a miniumum an MPEG4 & HD) TV which can handle the Saorview transmissions

Q: What Is MHEG5? Is it Essential?

A receiver which has MHEG5 Middleware can recieve RTÉ’s Digital Aertel Service and also future proofs the receiver for down the line interactive services

Q: Is it Possible to receive Irish & UK Digital channels on a single receiver?

There are some Saorview Approved UK & Irish Combo Receivers on the market. There are also a host of generic Combo Receivers on the market

very good place to shop on line .first class delivery .excellent choice and very good value
Bought this model last week. slight delay on shipping due to the courier company. TV box is great! Easy setup. Channels tuned straight away. Communications from the company are very good. I'll definitely purchase from again.

thank you very much
Very efficient company very fast with delivery and cannot fault the product
Neat little saorview box. Works perfectly. Very pleased.
Terrific little box and brilliant service/delivery from FreeTv
Product arrived really quickly and worked as expected.
Excellent service. Box installed and running in a matter of minutes could not be easier.
Excellent service, good product.
Great little set-top box Hardly any setting up Just plug and Play
and great Service and Price Love the Help Videos too What's not to like about this Company
i would highly recomond Tv Trade to anybody
Ordered this product yesterday and received it this morning. Works perfectly on my old television with a plug in ariel. Would definitely recommend this product.
Next day delivery. Easy to set up. Crystal clear picture... I would happily recommend the xoro box and tvtrade.
Bought a xoro combo for the main room and a xoro dtv-m5 for the bedroom. Well impressed with both. Brilliant website and service and would have no hesitation in recommending TV Trade to any of my friends or neighbours. Thanks.
Now been using by box for a couple of days. I am impressed by the PVR features. Connected to a USB stick I can pause live television, record from the EPG and play movies from an external hard disk. Much better than a DVD recorder.
I don't know why you'd pay more for an official box, when this does exactly the same thing for far cheaper. Will tell all my friends about this box. Recommend to anyone thinking of getting a saorview box.
