Big Changes To How You Watch Euro 2016 As TV3 And RTÉ Reportedly Do Deal

Big Changes To How You Watch Euro 2016 As TV3 And RTÉ Reportedly Do Deal
By PJ Browne Updated

Both The Irish Sun and Irish Independent report this morning that TV3 is set to secure broadcast rights for Euro 2016.

According to The Sun, TV3 will pay the national broadcaster €2 million for the rights to 22 games. The remainder will be shown by RTÉ.

All of Ireland's games will be shown on RTÉ, who retain first preference for knockout matches.

The deal will be subject to ratification by UEFA.

The Indo say the deal will allow RTÉ to bring back the much-loved Aprés Match for the finals. Their appearance for Euro 2016 had been in doubt recently. The trio of Barry Murphy, Risteárd Cooper and Gary Cooke have become as much as a fixture for big tournaments on RTÉ as Dunphy and Giles.

We've already seen shifts in where we watch sport on Irish terrestrial TV in recent times with TV3 broadcasting the Rugby World Cup and securing rights for the Six Nations from 2018.

It's certainly a boom time for the career of Tommy Martin.
