I can’t see a particular programme or am getting an error

Here are the possible reasons for this:

  • Some programmes may not be available to watch on the eir sport app due to content restrictions. Those programmes are greyed out in the programme guide.
  • Some programmes are only available to watch on your home internet connection.
  • If you receive an error when attempting to watch a channel, try another channel or failing that log out of the app and re-login then attempt to watch the channel again.
