THE IRISH LEAGUE SHOW NOW ON BBC iPLAYER

In one of the most exciting Danske Bank Premiership seasons in years, BBC Sport NI has announced new ways to watch all the action unfold.

The Irish League Show, a weekly highlights and analysis programme, is now available to watch via the BBC iPlayer.

Since the 2012/13 football season, The Irish League Show, presented by Joel Taggart/Michael McNamee and joined by former Irish League striker Chris Morgan has been available every Monday, during the Danske Bank Premiership season, via the BBC Sport website on bbc.co.uk/sportni. 

Jane Tohill, Executive Producer for BBC Sport NI says: “We are delighted to be in a position to offer The Irish League Show to iPlayer audiences. The ease of accessibility across various smart phones, tablets and connected TVs ensures the widening of the programme audience potential, thus we hope to welcome new viewers to the Northern Ireland Football League scene via this new platform.”

NI Football League Managing Director, Andrew Johnston is delighted that the Danske Bank Premiership is now more accessible to watch match highlights.  

“I must praise the BBC for making the Irish League Show available on their iplayer,” said Johnston.

“Monday evenings have become a popular time for our supporters and players who want to watch extended match highlights and analysis, and the launch of the Irish League Show on the iplayer provides everyone with a further platform to do this.” 

 Joel Taggart, presenter of the programme says: “Having The Irish League Show available via the BBC iPlayer is an exciting development for us all. It gives regular fans a new alternative when they are choosing how to watch the programme but also introduces new viewers to the Danske Bank Premiership during what’s been one of the most dramatic seasons for many years.”

Match of the Day, Match of the Day 2 and The Football League Show are all part of the growing football package available on the BBC iPlayer and The Irish League Show will now be promoted alongside such well established brands.

You can watch The Irish League Show on Monday evenings across all BBC iPlayer connected devices.

The BBC iPlayer helped revolutionise TV viewing consumption back in 2007 with its seven day catch-up window and has since grown steadily, now with over seven million TV and radio programme requests a day. The window to download programmes has now been extended from seven to 30 days on a variety of mobiles, tablets and computers.
