New Year’s Day you won’t get much Irish as they trying to fit 6 meetings in plus isn’t it an embarrassment that a tv channel has to go begging to another broadcaster to show their content.
The whole process across the UK and Ireland needs changing, the courses tv rights need a thorough review.
Free Sports is not subscription so will Virgin viewers get free access or will they block access if you don’t subscribe to Rtv?December 20, 2019 at 11:14 #1477614
It’s a free-to-air production, Steve, so if the Free Sports channel is on Virgin I think there will be free access for everyone:December 23, 2019 at 09:43 #1477893DBRDBRParticipant

So, there will be a seperate Irish channel on Boxing Day. Does this mean the regular channel will only show the British racing? With Huntingdon being abonded that will be 4 British races and 3 Irish races. If the Irish and British races will be shown only on one channel each than it should be okay.December 23, 2019 at 15:35 #1477911
I suspect that RTV will try to show as many Irish races as it can on the regular channel, knowing that it has protected itself from criticism regarding the ones it can’t by virtue of the free channel, which, I agree, would be unsatisfactory and unenjoyable.December 26, 2019 at 14:04 #1478102
So the irish authorities have as many brain cells as the UK ones

At work watching the racing on ITV. They couldn’t be arsed to show the Grade One chases in Ireland but that didn’t stop them from spoiling both results.
Utter feckless twits.December 27, 2019 at 18:18 #1478257
Somebody please tell Ed Chamberlin the difference between Alan Johns, the jockey, and Alan Jones, the trainer!December 27, 2019 at 23:14 #1478282

You would not have liked the ‘old days’ then Bachelors Hall when ITV and BBC gave the full results for every race taking place that day.
I have often read a lot of people want those days back.December 28, 2019 at 16:13 #1478385runandskip84Participant

RTV back to form today, Savills chase split screen with some gaff race from Catterick and then finish interrupted by the start of Leicester race.

New Year’s Day
Fit all those in without split screens Rtv?January 1, 2020 at 12:59 #1478665
Oh my goodness this is nonsense on rtv today, they even did a split screen between the 12.25 at Catterick and 12.30 at Musselburgh when Musselburgh hadn’t jumped.January 1, 2020 at 13:33 #1478668Cork All StarParticipant

Really not good today. Split screens on almost every race.January 2, 2020 at 03:28 #1478750seepigeonParticipant

I have a Sky Sport subscription because I want to watch football. 2019 saw racing added to the sport I can view. In the past few days I watched several races on Sky which have been delayed with the explanation being that it is due to waiting for a race elsewhere, i.e. in Ireland, to finish.
I watch Racing UK races via my bookmaker’s site or after the event with Sporting Life. What a shambles on Jan 1st! Races from Cheltenham and Fairyhouse being shown split screen! Later on there was the same with a race from Tramore. Why cannot Racing UK get its act together? I would not part with a penny for such an inferior service.January 2, 2020 at 12:07 #1478773FinalFurlong91Participant

Online you can watch the individual stream for whatever race you want to watch
Surely they have to add a red button so people can choose which track they want to watch
