why did none of the big tv companies including RT along with the Irish government put a rescue package together This was a great channel catering for many tastes
It is disgusting that this company was allowed to bust Typical big business tactics, out to close a good channel full of interesting subjects not the rubbish and third time around repeats put on by ITV

Robert Eastlake: Why would the Irish Government or RTE want to rescue a commercial TV station? Someone would have bought the channel as a whole and kept it on air if it made commercial sense to do so. It has nothing to do with big businesses closing anyone out, just commercial reality that the business plan for Irish TV didn't work (probably because they weren't getting enough viewers and therefore couldn't attract enough advertisers to fund the station and run it at a profit).

There's definitely an imbalance going on here.UK Freesat receivers and the channels associated with it,are freely available in the Irish Republic,yet the Republics TV services are blocked to UK Freesat and BSKYB. The Irish Diaspora yet again lose out. I have a work colleague,a Native of Co Mayo,who is really disappointed that Irish TV has ceased Broadcasting. Yes,the Irish Government could have taken over the running of the channel completely,as it was great publicity for Ireland as a whole. Perhaps an opportunity missed. RTE continue to plead poverty,as usual and they are set to pull the plug on their RTE Radio 1 Long Wave service,in 2017. Surely with spot beams of the satellites now tightly targetted on the UK,surely RTE,TV3 and TG4,could be made available in the UK?
