RTÉ announces Irish and international 'box-set' additions to RTÉ Player

RTÉ have announced that acclaimed homegrown shows Love/Hate, Can't Cope, Won't Cope and Room to Improve are now available on their RTÉ Player service.

In addition, comedy and drama successes like Pure Mule, Bachelor's Walk, RAW, Bridget & Eamon, Paths to Freedom, Hardy Bucks and The Doireann Project are also featured, and available for on-demand viewing.

International content, such as the complete run of nineties US drama ER, and new-to-service series of staples like Frasier, The Shield, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, have also been added, joining current catch-up viewing for television hits The Hunting, Looking for Alaska, and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

The latest RTÉ Player documentary, Becoming Irish, explores the process for Irish citizenship and follows three hopefuls on their journey, while short-form comedy animation Your One Nikita returns, starring Aoife Dooley, Emmet Kirwan, Jen Hatton and Al Foran.

Current-affairs programming, including Claire Byrne Live, Prime Time and RTÉ News is available worldwide, while its cookery offerings, among them The Happy Pear, Neven's Irish Food Trails, Roz Purcell and Donal Skehan's Kitchen Hero, have helped bump the service up to 2 million streams in the past week.

Streaming has experienced a boom in the current circumstances, with Andy Serkis-starring Netflix adventure series The Letter for the King premiering today, based on the best-selling novel and telling the story of a ruthless prince who threatens to cast the world into darkness, when a young knight in training named Tiuri (Amir Wilson) embarks on an epic quest to deliver a secret letter to the king.
