TG4, the Irish language television channel is an independent statutory entity (Teilifís na Gaeilge). The channel has been on-air since late 1996.

TG4 is a free-to-air channel, available across all the viewing platforms, with a strong viewer base throughout the island of Ireland. An average of 650,000 viewers a day watch TG4 in the Republic of Ireland. This daily figure exceeds 1 million people on major viewing days like Christmas Day and St. Patrick’s Day.

TG4 invests over €20m annually in original Irish programming from the independent production sector in Ireland. This investment supports 350 posts in small private sector companies throughout the island.

TG4 is the 8th most popular channel in Ireland with an average share of 2%. This is a very creditable performance in what is one of Europe’s most competitive national television markets, with a very high percentage of homes subscribing to satellite, cable or IP platforms that make available scores of TV channels and players that offer a wide choice of content.

The Government is providing current funding of €32.79m to TG4 for 2017. TG4 also derives income from selling commercial air-time and programme sponsorship. TG4 is acknowledged as one of the most efficient and cost effective television stations in Europe. The channel’s schedule – and its news service in particular – ensures a space for the non-centrist perspective and for emerging talent.

The channel’s programmes have achieved national recognition, prestigious prizes and awards at home and abroad and sales overseas.Music, documentary and sports coverage have earned particular praise for TG4. Its regular soap-opera, Ros na Rún has made its mark as has the channel’s distinctive news service, Nuacht TG4.

TG4 is a public service broadcaster. The functions and duties of TG4 (Teilifís na Gaeilge) are set out in the Broadcasting Act 2009. The entity has a twelve member board, currently chaired by Siún Ní Raghallaigh. TG4 receives a programme supply of 365 hours of Irish language programming annually from RTÉ, at no cost to TG4, as specified in the Broadcasting Act 2009.
