    Does anyone remember what channels were on Analogue Television, aside from RTÉ 1 & RTÉ 2

    TG4 and TV3.

    TV3 was only available from 12 main transmitter sites.

    BBC 1 and 2 and UTV (or HTV) and maybe channel 4 as well if you lived close enough

    Wasn't RTE 2 called Network 2 and TG4 called TnaG

    It was called TnaG up to late Autumn of 1999 when it was rebranded as TG4.

    As a child in the 70s and living in Dublin 5 we got BBC1 BBC2 & HTV. By the time Channel 4 came along most of Dublin had cable TV and we were getting UTV by then too.

    It was RTE 2 originally though. Network 2 was to try jazz up the station but eventually they went back to RTE 2

    Network 2 still sounds cooler, I was only 6 years old when it changed from Network 2 back to RTÉ 2 back in '04

    Started as RTE2 in 1978. Rebranded as Network 2 in 1988 and changed back to RTE2 in 2004.
