Also, all reception formats have 7 day EPGs available if you want; except for generic FTA satellite boxes. That has to have cut away over time. In 2002 analogue cable was the main multichannel reception format by a vast margin - ~20 channels and no EPG meant a paper TV guide was a must.

It's a thundering disgrace that Larry Gogan isn't on the cover this week to mark his departure from 2fm and to mark the last time his name will be listed in the guide after 58 years.

RTE Guide 2018 circulation numbers were released today. 43,195 for 2018. The decline continues. Circulation down from 130,327 back in 2002.

RTE have appointed KPMG to look at the future of the RTE Guide. Sale likely. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/i...uide-6w5clkztz

Yeah bizarre imo but RTÉ are really doing a bad job lately. Audiences down, home produced show cut, news axed, giving license fee to 2fm and so on, why not sell both RTÉ2 and 2fm?

According to the times Ireland, Enda O'Coineen owner of the sbp is interested in buying the guide. I read through the Guide for the first time in years recently and it's a very poor magazine, even as a tv listings magazine it's really bad, the cable/sat channels are all in small boxes and the layout of magazine is really dull, there are much superior TV listings magazines free with the tabloids on a Saturday.

Enda is taking one hell of a risk with this legacy print magazine where sales are collapsing into the sunset.

Layout of the TV listings is not that relevant. Their target market is old people who still watch linear TV and buy the magazine out of habit and don't use the internet.

I'm old. So what's the best internet site to give me all the programme listings? I could do with saving the pennies I begrudgingly fork out for the Guide every week.

For the staff at the RTÉ Guide I refuse to answer that question, I have also written a hand written letter to Mr. Google to not allow any searches on his website to display TV guide.

This is why RTÉ are in the state that they are in, people ask Mr. Google willy-nilly, sit down watch Virgin Media News and Buy TV Now if you must!
