RTÉ and BBCW renew output deal
28 Feb 2014 : Deirdre Molumby
Irish broadcaster RTÉ has renewed its output deal with BBC Worldwide giving it access to British series including Quirke and Eastenders.

The agreement is the most recent extension of a 20-year agreement between the two broadcasters. The deal covers a wide range of genres that include drama, comedy, natural history, factual and children’s.

Dermot Horan, RTÉ’s Director of Broadcast and Acquisitions, said “This new deal, together with our existing co-production and co-funding of content with the BBC, means our relationship with the BBC is growing significantly.”

Sam Tewungwa, Commercial Director, TV and VOD sales, BBC Worldwide, stated: “It’s great to know that as a result of this deal RTÉ viewers will be able to continue to enjoy the BBC programmes they love for years to come.”
