Comment: Deal is massive boost for embattled station
TV3 is fighting back. Ireland's second biggest television station might be down, but it's certainly not out.
The Ballymount broadcaster has taken some serious blows in the last couple of months. Chief among them was the news that UTV is launching a dedicated Irish station in the Republic next year – and secured the right to broadcast ITV content, which includes TV3 stalwarts 'Coronation Street' and 'Emmerdale'.
It also lost the right to broadcast GAA matches after Sky controversially secured a deal with Croke Park.
