The new service is available to anyone in Ireland with an internet connection, and is supported on multiple devices.

Customers can also start a 14-day free trial on either the Entertainment or Sky Cinema Pass bundle.

Ann-Marie MacKay is sales and marketing director, with Sky and NOW TV Ireland.

"NOW TV has arrived for customers looking for a no strings relationship with their TV.

"Customers simply sign up, choose a pass and start streaming on whatever device they want."

TV3 is on the system through its 3Player, while RTÉ and TG4 are not currently available.

But a spokesperson for Sky confirmed they are looking at including the RTÉ Player in the near future.

The on-demand service is owned by Sky plc. More information can be found here.
