The app for all the people using Saorview – Ireland's Free Digital Television Service.

Use this app to help you find and plan your favourite TV shows for watching on your favourite TV.

If you have Saorview you can see what shows are coming up and if you have Saorview Connect and you pair the app with your box you’ll get even more great features, such as....

SPOTLIGHT – Suffering from never-ending channel surfing and major thumb fatigue? Ouch! Let our team of telly watching experts pick and share the very best TV for the next 7 days.

MISSED IT? – Just back from doing big business in Geneva or Glanbannoo Upper and afraid you might have missed some great telly? Not a problem, let the app recommend shows that are available to watch right now on Saorview Connect.

REMINDERS – Need to take a nap (yaaa) or mow the lawn (booo) and afraid you might miss something? Don’t worry, set a reminder on the app and hey presto, no need to be afraid anymore. Unless you set a reminder to watch a scary movie, then roll on being afraid you big scaredy cat.

GUIDE – Or are you more the ‘master of your own destiny’ type of telly watcher? Well, that’s ok too as you can explore the next 7 days of TV and radio on the app's extensive guide.

SEARCH – Search for your favourite show, then when you find what you are looking for set a reminder or start watching on On Demand on Saorview Connect.

REMOTE CONTROL – Can't be bothered looking for the TV remote? Neither could we, and that's why with this app you can control your Saorview Connect box.

Simply doesn't work

Just gives error message. Delete and move on. For what it's worth Saorview connect needs a double satellite feed when most existing connections to the current set top box only has one feed. €158 for the box then another €100 to get a second satellite cable. Too expensive and not worth the effort. Also you have to swap between satellite and saorview in the settings menu if you want to view the Irish channels and vice versa. Pointlessly difficult.

Totally useless - won’t even open

I downloaded this app to iPad and iPhone6s. Every time I launch it (numerous times) I get error message ‘NO INTERNET CONNECTION NOOOOO! TRY AGAIN IN A BIT’. I am connected to home Wi-Fi on both devices as well as 4G on phone. I have deleted it and do not intend to load it again. Did you even test this before release?. So disappointed.

Waste of Space

Useless waste of space app. Just gives you what’s on now and next. Thought you might be able to watch the channels through it. Unable to give no stars.
