Sky Sports Racing And Racing TV Launch New Channels

New Year's Day saw us bring in another year into fruition and with that came along two new racing channels that have overall just seen a rebranding but it makes for quite an exciting time for racing fans.

The two new look channels come in the sense of Sky Sports Racing which will be taking over from At The Races and Racing TV which will be the rebranded version of Racing UK.

The first day of action for both channels saw Racing TV have the first stab at dominating where to watch racing, hosting six out of the eight cards on offer to view on the first day of the year.

Racing TV showed racing from Catterick, Cheltenham, Exeter, Musselburgh and two meetings from Ireland at Tramore and Fairyhouse racecourses.

These two Irish meetings are new additions to the channel after securing a deal to show all meetings ran from the 26 live racecourses in Ireland, which was formerly a contract At The Races held.

With so many different meetings to keep track of and show live on their first day as the new respective Racing TV there was always going to be little hiccups that were out of there control with Catterick having one race delayed by 25 minutes and Musselburgh also suffering delays, but this did not stop all viewers from being able to watch every race live from the six cards on offer.

For Sky Sports Racing it was a slower start than maybe what they would have hoped for with just the two live meetings to show from. Fakenham over the jumps and the only all weather card of the afternoon from Southwell made up the days racing.

However Wednesday see's the opposite and the new Sky channel takes centre stage hosting the majority of the action taking three out of the four meetings on offer across Great Britain and Ireland.

The channel will show racing from both the all weather cards at Wolverhampton and Newcastle and then a jumps meeting from Hereford. Racing TV offer just the one meeting, showing eight races from the Scottish racetrack Ayr.
