Currently, RTÉ’s catch-up service includes a selection of programmes, some classic content, a live channel, and radio.
Movies on RTÉ Player will be made available to audiences in Ireland only (island of), with no apparent immediate plans to expand this to international viewers “due to rights restrictions”.
It’s expected that more movie content will be added to RTÉ Player in the near future.
