The majority of people in Ireland pay to receive non-Irish channels such as the BBC channels, Sports and Movies channels. These are delivered by cable, MMDS, deflector or satellite. (In certain parts of the country the UK terrestrial channels: BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Channel4/S4C can be received "off air" via a roof top aerial).
What does ComReg Do
MMDS and deflector operators use radio spectrum to deliver programme services to people's households and are licensed by ComReg in relation to the transmission equipment. Cable operators, like other electronic communications networks, are not subject to a licensing requirement but are subject to conditions designed to avoid interference with other networks.
What does ComReg not Do
ComReg does not have the necessary legal powers to deal with consumer complaints for this area but in relation to Irish based operators will relay any complaint received to the relevant operator for direct reply.
