Radio by Satellite on the Way to the Masses

Sky Digital’s free dish and receiver offer will be available to subscribers in the Republic of Ireland for the first time from September providing you sign for a year’s subscription.

This will open up a new world of radio channels to Irish listeners, although BBC Radio 5 Live is encrypted outside the UK and is not available to Irish subscribers.

It is, of course, worth pointing out that the vast majority of satellite-delivered radio stations are available free to air and can be picked up using any satellite receiver.
