Wasn't it always digital, even in analogue TV days, just like the stereo audio carriers.

Why is it an attack on rural Ireland?
If that's not a stupid question.

If you're a TD from outside Dublin wanting to stay in the headlines and get re-elected, it's crucial that your reflexive response to just about everything is to call it an attack on rural Ireland.

Digital services without broadband.

On the cost there is presumably people or one well paid one employed to update it.

Can I ask why? Like what possible benefit does it have?

The only thing I could think of is that on the web there's so much stuff that you can get swamped pretty quick, while with aertel you're given just the essentials. But they would have to be really well-written.

You cant get someone to scratch their arse in a semi state for less than €50,000 a year. There's probably a whole legacy department in RTE running aertel. Its a decrepit dinosaur from top to bottom and should be disbanded in its entirety. If the employees are as good as their pay cheques suggest they'll have no problem getting jobs elsewhere.
