Saorview is Irelands free digital TV service.

Signal is received through your aerial. Saorview allows you to keep your older TV set, without the need to spend hundreds upgrading to a new television. There are also options to choose a newer Saorview box with options to record and pause live TV. You can also choose to opt for a combi-box, where you can receive both Saorview and free to air satellite. This gives you a much wider range of channels to choose from.

Are you confused by all the different types of TVs, boxes and options? Have a look at our quick guide below to see what will best you. At Direct TV, we can advise you, based on what TV you have, if you have an aerial etc. If you have any questions, speak to us today, we will be happy to help.
