The first of Sky Racing’s new channels, Sky Racing2, will go live on March 30 – the first stage in Sky’s racing vision revolution.

Sky Racing2 will feature more than 80 thoroughbred, harness and greyhound meetings each week. Of these, 35 will be new race meetings and more than half of those will be Australian.

Sky Racing is creating a new world of racing vision in 2010 with the introduction of two new channels, Sky Racing2 and Sky Racing World, to complement the existing Sky Racing channel.

The launch of Sky Racing World will take place in early May, as part of the second stage in the rollout of the new Sky Racing channels.
Sky Racing CEO, Brendan Parnell, said it signified a new era in race broadcasting in Australia.

“The launch of Sky Racing2 will give Australian punters watching racing more choice than ever before. As expected, we have had significant interest from race clubs wanting to be part of Sky Racing’s channel expansion,” he said.

The launch of the new Sky Racing channels is part of Tabcorp’s long-term strategy to expand racing choice for its customers and to provide superior showcasing of racing.
