How to view Victorian races

Racing Victoria has been officially advised by TVN that Sky Racing has not renewed its agreement for the right to broadcast Victorian and New South Wales thoroughbred races effective immediately.

Until otherwise advised, no Victorian and New South Wales thoroughbred races will be broadcast on Sky Racing 1, Sky Racing 2 or Sky Racing World.

Effective from today, 18 December 2014, and until otherwise advised, all Victorian and New South Wales TAB thoroughbred races will be broadcast live and exclusively via TVN, Racing Network and shortly racing.com.

Following is a summary of how Victorian and New South Wales TAB thoroughbred races can be viewed live from today:

Home: TVN – Channel 522 on FOXTEL/FOX SPORTS or Channel 984 on Telstra T-Box
Pubs/Clubs: TVN – Channel 522 in those venues with a commercial FOXTEL/FOX SPORTS licence*
Desktop: racingnetwork.com.au and racing.com** free of charge
Mobile: Racing Network App*** - free of charge until the end of January 2015
iPad/Tablet: Racing Network App*** - free of charge until the end of January 2015

* TVN has advised that it is working with the full cooperation of FOXTEL/FOX SPORTS to ensure that Victorian pubs/clubs have free access to TVN – Channel 522 via FOXTEL/FOX SPORTS. In the interim, please consult your local pub/club to determine if they can currently access TVN via FOXTEL/FOX SPORTS.

** racing.com is also working with TVN to provide live vision, free of charge, on desktop within the next 24 hours.

With respect to TAB agencies (retail Victorian TAB outlets excluding pubs and clubs), the broadcast of Victorian thoroughbred racing into those outlets is a requirement of the industry’s Joint Venture with Tabcorp. TVN and Tabcorp are working on the logistics of a TVN feed being broadcast into agencies as soon as possible. Further advice will be provided once more details are known.

In addition to the above, please note that:

replays of all Victorian thoroughbred races can be viewed free of charge at racing.com; and
live audio broadcasts of all Victorian thoroughbred races can be heard via the RSN radio network and online via racing.com.
