TG4 and RTE on Freeview in 2012

The Irish Times reports on a deal signed by the UK and Irish Governments that will make RTE and TG4 freely available in the North after the digital switchover in 2012.

It will be a small step once that happens to increased integration of Irish-language broadcasting North and South, with An Ciste Craolacháin funding much better representation on TG4 of Northern Ireland speakers and of Ulster Irish in general.

It has, however, been a long time since the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, and it is still two years away.
