At this time a new look was introduced, a new ident was introduced and all the miscellaneous presentation was revamped. The identity focuses on the theme of Irish folklore including the Children of Lir. For the first time since the channels launch the on-screen logo is found on the top left hand corner. All the new graphics are created for HD ahead of TG4 HD’s launch on UPC on 2 October 2012. The generic ident is also used after weather updates when a long ident is not required as the weather presenter acts as a continuity announcer at the end of the forecast announcing the next show.

In 1987 they set up the pirate television station Teilifís na Gaeltachta, after years of delays, including the sudden death of their technician who was to build the transmitter. Eighteen hours of live and pre-recorded programming was broadcast between 2 and 5 November 1987. The transmitter was built at a cost of IR£4,000 through donations from local Gaeltacht communities. In December 1988, further broadcasts were transmitted from three different sites, broadcasting pre-recorded programming. In 1999 with the onset of digital television, TnaG was rebranded as TG4 to strengthen the perception of the brand, from being niche Irish-language-only channel to mainstream channel with Irish-language programmes. The TG4 ident continued with the difference aspect of the channel, that provides an alternative view, the slogan Súil Eile translates literally as “another eye” but is also a pun in Irish meaning “a different view”.

Whether you access it from your PC, laptop, tablet, or phone, you’ll get HD quality live football. Besides soccer, the site also provides NBA and NFL streams for those who enjoy American football and basketball. Although it’s free, it doesn’t have an annoying amount of pop-up ads.

TG4 promotions now feature the seasons Geimhreadh , Earrach , Samhradh and Fómhar . The opening ad break ident states Fan Linn (“stay with us”) and the ad break ends with Seo Linn (“here we are”). In Autumn 2010 the season theme was dropped and replaced by a blue cube logo, the idents were updated with the TG4 logo animating up in a different way.

Research is shown that those who watch or listen to TG4 is deemed to have a better understanding of the language. As well as that, having Gaeilge as a language, first or second is shown to better employment. Since its inception TG4 has provided a huge amount of light entertainment programming to its Irish speaking audience, such go to my blog as the chat show Ardán and the fashion/dating show Paisean Faisean. Each Tuesday Night Páidí Ó Lionáird hosts their Current Affairs flagship show 7 Lá , the name derives from RTÉ’s original Current Affairs programme 7 Days. Every Sunday night, Eimear Ní Chonaola presents Timpeall na Tíre, a round up of all the major stories of the week.

In 2011 TG4 took a major coup in taking away exclusive highlights of the Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup from RTÉ Sport. This led to TG4 having Live coverage of the new Pro14, which is what the Celtic League was rebranded in 2011 as well as highlights of the top matches in European rugby. TG4 provides live coverage of Dáil Éireann each Wednesday and Thursday morning; as well as live coverage of the proceedings of key Dáil Committees from time to time. Independent producers apply for the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland’s Sound and Vision Fund. The Irish Language Broadcasting Fund also provides some funding to programmes made for the channel; the fund is administered by Northern Ireland Screen.

In 1969, Lelia Doolan, Jack Dowling and Bob Quinn published Sit down and Be Counted, a book describing their campaign for a separate Irish-language television service. Bob Quinn is a film director who produced many documentaries and fiction films through the Irish language on limited budgets, including the first Irish-language feature film Poitín starring Niall Tóibín, Cyril Cusack and Donal McCann.

In general however TG4 perceived that live action series aimed at adults re-dubbed into Irish was not an attractive proposition even for fluent Irish speakers, as is the cases for many bilingual northern European viewers. In Autumn 2013, the broadcaster started moving away from US imports instead focusing on successful European drama series from the Nordic countries. On 28 August 2013, TG$ announced its new schedule for autumn/winter 2013. Which relied on imports from internationally-acclaimed Nordic dramas such as Arne Dahl from Sweden, The Bridge co-produced in Sweden and Denmark and Danish drama Borgen.

The Irish language enthusiast Seán Tadhg Ó Gairbhí wrote Súil eile . The Irish Times selected it as one of its best Irish language books of the year and described it as “the standard book for anyone wanting to take a súil eile at the history of the station for years to come”. On 1 April 2007, Teilifís na Gaeilge became an independent statutory corporation. Former Gaelic Athletic Association president Peter Quinn became first chairman of the corporation. The other members appointed to the authority were Joe Connolly, Pádraig MacDonnacha, Eilís Ní Chonghaile, Méabh Mhic Ghairbheith, Méadhbh Nic an Airchinnigh, Bríd Ní Neachtáin, Feargal Ó Sé, and Regina Culliton.

On top of this they bought Irish-language rights to the 2011 Rugby World Cup whereby they had lucrative rights to re-run matches from the Rugby World Cup 2011 in the afternoon. Therefore, Setanta Ireland had all matches live, RTÉ had 13 live matches, including all-Irish matches and every match from the quarter finals onwards. TG4 re-ran all the big matches in the afternoon such as the Ireland v Australia match and England and Welsh match.

The comedy initially centred around the office of the acting-chairman of ACT (An Chomhairle Teanga/The Language Commissioner) played by Risteárd Cooper as he fought to save the organisations from “An Bord Snip Nua”. Burn, a comedy series about a Donegal undertaker, and Glenn Ceo, a comedy about a small town Garda station in Donegal. In 2015, TG4 launched a new dating show called Pioc do Ride where contestants choose a date from three potential partners based only on their car. SÓS (the Irish for “break”, and the use of a pun on “SOS”) was one of TG4s early attempts at reality television.

In the lead up to the transmissions of TnaG in the autumn of 1996, RTÉ tested transmissions with airings of Fawlty Towers. The TnaG service provided little in the way of imports except for children’s programming. They also dubbed into Irish a number of European, Welsh and Scottish programmes. In the early 1990s, Irish language programmes amounted to only 5% of total programming broadcast by RTÉ, and was reduced significantly during the summer months. Programmes included Echo Island for children, and current affairs programme Cúrsaí. Before the birth of TG4, RTÉ had suggested the use of RTÉ Two’s prime-time schedule for Irish-language programming.
