    Hi Folks,

    My parents going to America on holidays and the mother is a big Fair City fan!

    She was wondering if ‘RTE Player’ can be accessed in the States?……

    Thanks for any replies,

    Probably would need a VPN 😀

    I believe it does as big events like Toy show mention people watching all over world.

    Some programs may not be available but sure they can play Fair City

    I don't belive Fair City will work, there's a very limited selection of what will, generally only current affairs, news and chat shows due to rights issues.

    Late Late Show, Tommy Tiernan, Prime Time and News will work.

    From my experience, even with VPN (NORD) it doesnt work as it says you are using a vpn

    It works in Australia but it doesnt show all programs eg comedys dramas, not made by rte , I use muchotv free TV 1 hour a day has all UK and Irish channels live TV only, there's some Irish channels shown on usa cable TV. Just make an account, email and password, eg Usernooo44. Use chrome or brave browser so I think player will work in the USA
