RTE has launched ad free torrents for all users of the broadcaster’s TV and radio services.
Users of RTE’s News Now app will be able to access ad free content from the broadcaster, which is currently limited to a handful of countries.
News Now users can choose to access a list of popular sites including BBC iPlayer and Sky Sports.
The ad-free torrents feature is only available on the RTE app for Windows PC and Android devices.
It will be available in the RTV app for Android, iPhone and iPad devices on the coming weeks.
News Now users will be aware of a new ad-blocking feature in News Now on Android and iOS.
Ad-blocking allows users to opt-out of some ad-serving content on their news app, but not others.
Ad blocking is also available in RTE apps for iOS and Android.
RTE said it has also implemented a new system to automatically detect when an ad-loaded news article is about to run.
News Today, News Today, RTE, RTV, News TV, News Now, News Tonight, RTS and RTS1 will also be ad-blockable, while News Today 2 will not.
The news service has been the first to offer ad-supported streaming of RTS, News News and RTE channels.
