Setanta Sports 1 to continue in Ireland
Neither Setanta Ireland nor Setanta International have entered administration today.
Setanta Sports 1 and Setanta Ireland will continue broadcasting to the Republic of Ireland without interruption, the company said; however, levels of coverage in Northern Ireland were unconfirmed at the time of publication.
In a statement, Setanta Ireland explained: "Setanta Sports Ireland will now cover broadcasting in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Please note that there are different levels of coverage available in Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland, and the full programme content will be advised in due course."
For audiences in the Republic of Ireland, Setanta said: "We are working with various sporting organisations to bring the best of the sporting action to the package. In the meantime we will continue to show top live action including Barclays Premier League, Magners League Rugby, GAA Coverage, Formula 1, Champions League, Europa League, and live golf from the major tours."
The company sought to discourage Irish subscribers from cancelling their subscriptions.
"As we are going through this period of change, we would suggest that you do not unnecessarily cancel your subscription. We will be communicating with our customers as soon as possible to outline any new pricing and sporting content.
"If you still require to discuss any change to your account, please contact our Customer Service Team on 0818 20 30 40 (ROI) 0871 200 4170 (NI)
"For now, it is best to hold off making any decisions about your subscription, we will be communicating with all of our customers to outline new pricing and content that will be available."
