“Samsung is the No.1 TV brand in Ireland, and RTÉ Player is the most popular catch up TV service, so this is a natural partnership,” said Brendan Carr, product marketing manager, Samsung Ireland, “The launch of RTÉ Player is the latest addition to our ever growing library of great TV Apps, and further demonstrates our leadership in the Smart TV category. Catch up TV services are one of the leading drivers of Smart TV usage, so RTÉ Player will be a real added value benefit for Samsung Smart TV owners.”
