) is an Irish public service broadcaster for Irish-language speakers. It is available to 98% of homes in Ireland through digital terrestrial television Saorview and is available on Virgin Media Ireland, e Vision, Magnet Networks and Sky Ireland.TG4 is also available to watch online live and to view previously broadcast programmes from around the world through the TG4 Player.In December 1988, further broadcasts were transmitted from three different sites, broadcasting pre-recorded programming.

In 1989, Ciarán Ó Feinneadha, one of the members of Coiste ar son Teilifís Gaeltachta, moved to Dublin and set up a similar organisation in the capital called Feachtas Náisiúnta Teilifíse (FTN).

FTN outlined their demands: It was also suggested that the cap on advertising on RTÉ be removed and the additional funds be designated for the new services.

In fewer than six months from the launch of Teilifís na Gaeilge, almost 65% of Ireland's television sets were able to receive the channel and the nightly audience had risen to 250,000 viewers.

Three months later, in May 1997, independent research revealed that the station was able to attract audiences of 500,000, or 68% of television sets in Ireland, for at least one hour's viewing per week.

TG4 launched its high-definition channel (TG4 HD) in 2012 on Virgin Media Ireland.

The first HD broadcast featured the 2012 TG4 Ladies Gaelic Football Championship final.

The PDs also looked for the setting up of what they called "Teilifís na Gaeltachta".

The Green Party's manifesto from 1987 also called for the establishment of such a channel.

It has been reported to have a share of 2% of the national television market in the Republic of Ireland and 3% of the national television market in Northern Ireland.

The daily Irish-language programme schedule is its core service: seven hours of programming in Irish supported by a wide range of material in other languages, mostly English.
