EDIT : October 2014 : it seems that AerTV now only offers 10 minutes of free TV a day, otherwise to watch it online you need to have a subscription with them for €5.99 / month. This now seems rather unusable unless you pay :(.
One user has pointed out to us that with OverPlay and Aertv.ie you are able to watch GAA online this weekend. Here is his screenshot with the minor Limerick & Galway game being shown on RTÉ2. This user used Overplay OpenDNS, Google Chrome, watching RTE2 on Aertv.ie in Spain. Here’s what Mike sent us
The quality isn’t as good as the RTÉ Player, but it’s not too bad and it’s much better than listening to the match on the radio. This works for me on my holidays here in Marbella, here’s to GAA and sangria ! I thought people would like to know it is possible to watch the games.
To get this to work you will need to
- Sign up to OverPlay’s OpenDNS system, it costs $4.95 (€3.70) for 1 month’s access (with a 7 day money back guarantee). You only need the OpenDNS and not the full VPN.
- Configure your DNS server to Overplay’s rather than your ISPs.
- Visit AerTV.ie and enjoy the game on RTE2 !
Thanks Mike ! Hopefully it will work for the Limerick versus Clare game later today at Croke Park. This game is the 2nd of the All Ireland hurling semi-finals. The winner will play Cork in the final. Last weekend Cork steamed through and beat Dublin after Dublin had a player sent off for a bad tackle.
update : this is working for the Clare vs. Limerick game , 18/8/2013.
Half time score : Clare 1-10 to 0-06 of Limerick and still working. Full-time Clare 1-22 Limerick 0-18. What a great game of hurling. The All Ireland senior hurling final between Cork & Clare will take on Sunday September 8.
Update : 25/8/2013 : This is currently working for the Mayo vs. Monaghan minor game that’s just started.
