Availability of eir sport 1 & eir sport 2 in HD only


It’s been another great season of sport so far. As Ireland’s leading sports broadcaster, eir sport is delighted to have been able to bring you some truly iconic moments. Liverpool’s premier league title fight with Manchester City, Munster and Leinster’s   journey to the semi-finals of the Champions Cup, the four provinces’ battles in PRO 14, the Allianz League action and Michael Conlan’s return to Madison Square Garden – to name but a few. It has been our pleasure to share these with you and so much more in full high-definition (HD) going forward.

Please note that from 15 May 2019, eir sport 1 & eir sport 2 will no longer be broadcast in standard definition (SD) on the Sky TV platform, and will only be available in HD. If the removal of the SD versions of the eir sport channels from the Sky TV platform causes you difficulties in accessing the eir sport service or if you have other queries, please contact our customer service team on 0818 203040 from 10am to 6pm Monday to Saturday.

The BT Sport SD channels will remain available on Sky TV, along with BoxNation SD.  If you wish to upgrade your SD Sky TV box to HD you can do so by contacting Sky directly or find out more by visiting: www.sky.com/ireland/tv/sky-q/upgrade

We hope you will join us as we look ahead to another year of top quality LIVE action on the eir sport pack.
