Wonderful! 😡 So no more of the nice full-screen high def picture of UK/Irish/world racing to accompany one's morning. I hope the choices for the individual feeds will still be available.

That's just ONE bad aspect of this change.

Don't you remember "Wide World of Sports"? The 'agony of defeat'. Saturday afternoon they'd televise some ski jumping competition out of a European town you never heard of.

California finally has sports betting on the ballot in November with two Propositions (26,27).

Could be a driving force behind the decision, the more knowledgeable here would have a better idea.

This can only help RTN. It is well worth the money.

“ The overnight slot would be filled with “tertiary” sports with watch & wager rights, such as Korean football, pickleball and Chinese basketball.”

Farewell to my beloved late night Australian racing.

This looks like a sure way to shoot yourself in the foot and blow the 60 million race players customer base that TVG has built up since 1999.
I live in Las Vegas and can tell you from my experience working in the gaming industry for over 40 years this will be a catastrophic mistake.
FanDual will never convert horse players to sports bettors. Horse racing you have instant decisions where sports wagering decisions take hours.
Don't blow up your fan base on TVG you will surely regret it.

if you are a NYRA or Churchill player, the Fox feed is great. they have great camera angles on the horses in the paddock and on the race track along with knowledgeable analysts..

Does anyone believe that the TVG channel could solely survive on a non horse player crowd ? The Fanduel content reminds me of those Sunday morning shows back in the 80’s and 90’s where these characters would tout their picks. Honestly I don’t see any synergy between horse racing and sports betting. Most bettors are focused on either one or the other.
