There Was One Clear Winner In The RTÉ Vs TV3 Euro 2016 Final Viewership Battle

There Was One Clear Winner In The RTÉ Vs TV3 Euro 2016 Final Viewership Battle
By PJ Browne

Both RTÉ and TV3 had coverage of last night's Euro 2016 final at the Stade De France.

TV3's broadcast started at 6pm with Tommy Martin having a Q&A session with Ireland manager Martin O'Neill. Even the presence of O'Neill could not help TV3 in the numbers battle against the national broadcaster.

An average of 782,100 or 46% of those watching TV at the time tuned into RTÉ's coverage of the game. That dwarfs TV3's viewership. They averaged 116,000, just 7% of the share.

It was also RTÉ who dominated the tournament as a whole. Then ten most watched games of Euro 2016 on Irish TV were shown by RTE. Those top four were all Ireland games with the last-16 encounter versus France the most watched of all.
