The GAA has told TDs and Senators that a date change of one game for GAA GO set it on a difficult trajectory.
The organisation told the Oireachtas Media Committee it is expected to make €4 million this year from it's commitments to GAAGO.
The GAA has clarified to Today FM that the €4 million figure is for GAAGO's entire income and not profit for GAA.
Its Director General Tom Ryan said he anticipates the largest share of that money will come from domestic users.
The streaming site which is a joint venture between RTE and the organisation has come in for a lot of criticism in recent months.
Tom Ryan says it's not realistic to expect every championship game to be free-to-air:
"One date change for a game that was beyond our control and some unfortunate commentary around our coverage, set it on a difficult trajectory," he said while talking about Clare against Limerick in the Munster Championship.
"It's great that people want to see our matches, but the expectation that every single game should be on television is just not realistic. It's not in our interest and it's not in our plans."
