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

Great picture from this box. Fast delivery too. Very happy with the whole transaction from start to finish. Recommended.
Excellent service. Courier was able to deliver next day. Worked straight out of the box. Only downside is that the remote control is a little slow and the EPG is not as "slick" as some I've seen. If you want cheap access to Irish Digital TV this is an excellent product.
Just connected to my old aerial and ran a scan for the new saorview channels. Took me two minutes, including opening the box to set up! Videos are a great help to non techie guys like myself. Brilliant.
Absolute bargain. Have an official saorview box at home and got this receiver for the bedroom. I can't see the difference at all and in fact this receiver has a quicker response time and a far better media player, not to mention that it costs far less. Top class and will be recomending to all my friends and family.
Great little box,excellent range of formats in media player plus MHEG 5. If only Xoro combined this box with satellite we would all be on a winner.
Ordered Saorview box Xoro DTV M5 at 6.30pm yesterday it arrived in Mullingar at 9am today. Great box, great service.
Great value box. Does exactly what it says on the tin.
Can't believe how good the picture is on the new saorview channels. No more fuzzy tv pics for me. Well worth the investment.
Great value and the picture is absolutely perfect. Love the new digital teletext aswell.
Does exactly what it says on the tin and at a lower price than most boxes.
