Live TV Ad—18th November 2008
History was made last night when RTÉ and Directory Enquiries number 118 50 transmitted the first live ad to air in Ireland. It also marked a European first, as this was the first commercial to be simulcast across a variety of media platforms in any European country.
The 90-second live ad aired on RTÉ Two television, RTÉ Radio 1 LW and RTÉ.ie during the half time break of the long awaited Munster vs. All Blacks rematch and can now be viewed online at www.11850.ie, Bebo and You Tube
