Except the BBC does broadcast to Ireland doesn't it? Wasn't that an outcome of the Good Friday Agreement.
I believe there is a provision in the GFA to allow transmissions from both broadcasters on each others terrestrial networks
Before DSO that was only taken up by TG4 on one low power transmitter near Belfast . RTE 1 & 2 are now broadcast as well but older boxes because of the codec used cannot see them
It's never been taken up by the BBC or anyone else for ROI transmitters
When they were testing Digital TV in 2006/7 they did carry BBC3 and BBC4 on their scrambled test service
A few years ago when there appeared to be some movement on the situation there was opposition from the main cable company and IIRC Sky
