Plans Announced for Next Generation RTÉ Player
2017-04-26 9:00:00 : Katie McNeice
The new service will be launched before the end of the year and will serve as RTÉ’s multi-channel television and video platform, designed to accommodate the behaviour of Irish audiences, regarding both televised and online content.

The reimagined user interface will encompass fresh functionality and features, which will accommodate users in accessing curated on-demand libraries, new original RTÉ Player shorts and live channels on any screen.

The multi-platform experience will be available across web, iOS, Android, connected TVs and OTT services, including Saorview, Chromecast, Android TV and Apple TV.

Project Team
There are three key players involved in bringing the project through various stages of development, with IT Business Consulting company Fincons Group as lead partner, 24i as app developers and with an integrated content personalisation solution from ContentWise.

Múirne Laffan, RTÉ’s Chief Digital Officer:
“The delivery of the next generation RTÉ Player is hugely important for RTÉ’s future. It is a sophisticated proposition that will position us to meet evolving audience expectations and compete within a highly competitive, globalised media environment.”

Aoife Byrne, Director of Content & Products:
“In order to meet the changing needs of our audiences, we are transforming RTÉ Player from being a pure catch-up TV service, to being a world-class live and on-demand online TV and video platform. Irish audiences will continue to be able to catch up on their favourite show, but with the next-generation RTÉ Player we will soon be offering so much more: on-demand libraries with hundreds of great titles from across the genres; great box-sets to binge on, and brand new short-form content, exclusive to RTÉ Player. Audiences will also be able to enjoy RTÉ’s television channels live, on any screen.

“As well as delivering on our audience’s content needs, we want next-generation RTÉ Player to deliver a superb streaming experience. To achieve this, we are working with our delivery partners Fincons Group, 24i and ContentWise who are hugely experienced in delivering world-class online TV and video platforms. We are rebuilding the product from the ground up to ensure technical reliability, and we will also be adding some great new features and functionality such as live restart and autoplay to make watching great TV and video even better”

Michele Moretti, CEO at Fincons Group:
“We are delighted to be bringing our tailored solutions and wealth of experience to support such a key strategic project for a national media like RTÉ,designing and integrating a future-proof OTT solution which will efficiently provide a seamless and compelling multiscreen user experience. Building on our extensive experience working with the major international players, this project further confirms our footprint in the media and broadcast sector.”
