I get my TVG2 on Roku. Perhaps others know if there are other ways.

The problem with those is you have to have a TVG account, and depending where you live not everyone can get one. For example, Oklahoma. Weird because every other ADW I have found besides TVG and NYRABets takes Oklahoma.

Email mail@tvg.com should work for Vic if he checks it on air...or at least that’s what Rich Perloff tells viewers when he is on...

I asked Rich about how to access emails. He said it was very complicated and I needed IT to help since I use my PC when on the air.

Rich suggested I push everybody to my twitter. So I did.

Email complicated..? Now I know Rich is a Dis-info agent like me.....there must be more to THIS “obvious fabrication”...
Better ask Rich if he wants to come clean about THAT ONE..

Honestly, I would like to Email, you see, like Gus I am twitter-less...and don’t really like the idea of becoming a Tweeter...
But alas, I’ll understand...as there no doubt are technical constraints involved...the portable handicapsule has not been invented yet...

If you want to email during my show. Here's my personal email. thegoofontheroof@hotmail.com I'll remind myself to check it during breaks.

This isn't espionage. Everybody that checks the emails when on the air is using a TVG owned laptop that's connected to the corporate email. I was told it was very complicated to tap into that system from an outside computer. Laugh all you want. But that's the story.

100% agree with this. You can tell when he is on that he has capped the races and put time in. I like that he takes a shot on some races and gives you excellent background on why while fully acknowledging that he is taking a shot. My favorite guy on that channel.

I don't find Beyer boring at all on air, though he's better with TLG or (before he retired) Steven Crist because obviously that's a different relationship than he has a random DRF host. Sounds more like two opinionated friends talking about the races, which is the ideal format to me.

You beg the question as to what substance is. Having spent a small amount of time with Matt while I was leaching a seat in his dad's box at Del Mar, I would say that he has great handicapping knowledge and a passion for racing that rivals Beyer's. So in my view it would come down to style. If somebody is giving me good information I can overlook their style.

If you're a TVG customer, like we're forced to be here in NJ, you can stream TVG and/or TVG2 through the TVG site as well.
