Ireland’s opening Rugby World Cup warm-up match against Wales in Cardiff tomorrow is to be broadcast excusively live on BBC One Wales, meaning it is not widely available in Ireland.

However, don’t worry as there are ways to tune in and we’ve put together a step-by-step guide to make it as easy as possible for you.

Firstly, it’s worth noting that BBC Wales is not available at all on UPC. It is available on some free-to-air satellite boxes at channel 38.

If you’re a Sky Digital customer you can tune the channel in to the ‘Other Channels’ section by following these instructions:

1. Press ‘services’ on your Sky remote control.

2. Scroll down once and then across until you land on ‘add channels’.

3. From there scroll down and key in the following details:

Frequency: 10.788

Polarisation: V

Symbol Rate: 22.0

FEC: 5/6

Standard: DVB-S

Modulation Scheme: QPSK

4. Once those details have been entered, press the yellow button and the system will begin to scan for channels. Note that at this stage it may come up with a message saying ‘no signal found’. If this happens simply press the yellow button again to re-scan. It may take a few attempts to find the channel.

5. Once the scan is complete a list of channels will show up. Scroll through until you reach ‘BBC Wales One’ and then press the yellow button to store the channel.

6. Finally, press select to save what you have done.

7. BBC One Wales will now be in the ‘Other Channels’ section of your Sky Guide when you press services on your remote control.

All that’s left to do at that stage is to get yourself a beverage, settle down and watch Ireland begin their Rugby World Cup warm-up campaign.
