    One of my parents has SKY, the other Chorus, & both want to stop paying for subscription TV. Both live in Bray, Co. Wicklow.

    What equipment do they need to invest in. Both still want to get the RTE stations and as many as the free to air channels from the UK.

    Any advice appreciated.

    RTE is subscription only (via Sky) on satellite.

    If the have a dish installed you still can get a lot of the UK channels such as bbc/itv for free. Just need a sat receiver, or even better get a freesat box and you get the epg aswell.
    DTT is now on trial in a few places in Ireland and you can pick up rte1,2,tv3 and tg4 with that.
    Have a look over on boards.ie in the broadcasting section and Terristerial tv you can find info on what sites are broadcasting.
    To receive this you'd need a dvb-t tuner (with mpeg4). There are lots of discussions aswell about dual sat/terristerial boxes.
