History

Launched in 2004, Celtic TV was operated by the Irish company Setanta Sports, and was available on satellite and cable platforms in the UK and Ireland until the demise of the Pay TV operator's UK operation on 23 June 2009, resulting in all of the Setanta run channels including Celtic TV and its Old Firm counterpart, Rangers TV to be closed (The latter has since reopened) [1] After Setanta Sports entered administration and ceased all broadcasting on its core channels and the channels were closed, Celtic announced that Celtic TV has ceased broadcasting and the channel would not return until a deal with a new rights holder is struck. In 2011, it returned as an internet-only channel, replacing Channel 67 under the Celtic TV name, and the channel is 100% owned by the club.[2][3]

Other Celtic Media

As with other football clubs, Celtic have their own media outlets to communicate official news and information to their supporters. These include:
