They (copies of broadcast programmes) are not cheap - min charge E65+VAT. 
I 
found http://www.rte.ie/laweb/sales/sales_priv_charges.html
after poking around a bit.

It's typically stupid of RTE to charge so much - the programme is saved 
on a DVD/HDD somewhere after all .

If they charged (say) E20 per programme they'd actually get some business 
but they prefer to just deal with @corporate clients@ who will pay 
whatever they ask...
