Sunday Game
Sky TV has apologised after viewers in the north of Ireland were blocked from watching popular RTE sports programme, The Sunday Game, on the satellite platform. Sinn Féin Seanadóir Niall Ó Donnghaile has welcomed an apology: “I welcome the apology from Sky TV for incorrectly blocking the ‘Sunday Game’ from being broadcast to satellite TV viewers in the north. “Viewers rightly aired their frustration due to being met with a blank screen on Sunday night.
