Taking KZN racing away from Tellytrack means bye bye major betting on KZN - I don't bet from delayed streams.

Atleast they still have time to sort their nonsense out. If I can’t turn my tv on and watch then I don’t bother,I’m streaming anything off my computer. Get racing on tv or that’s it,I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling like this. I bet on races that I don’t see the race.
Racing is in a tough position at the moment and gold circle and 4 racing need to sort it out. I do understand that Phumelela owed gold circle over this,but does this mean that there is more to it between 4 racing and gold circle.

Taking KZN racing away from Tellytrack means bye bye major betting on KZN - I don't bet from delayed streams.

No stream will ever be "live". The best I have seen is a 15 second delay including sports.

Even satellite signals are delayed hence drones are appearing at racecourses to take advantage of in running betting. Even in tennis there is a term called " courtsiders" whereby a person sends out every point result before the satellite signal reaches anywhere.

A digital satellite signal is definitely required. I get your point, you want to watch the race as live as possible and in the most convenient way. I stand to be corrected but I think Tellytrack is paying a fee to DSTV to broadcast their signal.

Every effort must be made to get racing onto "free" to air providers...the wider the distribution of the product, the greater the likelihood of increasing customers...

Life's too short to have a long face...so, cherish the good, learn from the bad and forget the rest...

From Sportingpost.


www.sportingpost.co.za/2022/01/4racing-betting-channels/

4RacingTV will this week launch two brand new betting channels providing punters all the essential race and bookmakers tote betting info and non-stop live local and international races at the tip of their fingers.
The Global Racing 1 and Global Racing 2 channels will launch on Wednesday 19 January 2022, catering for the horseracing retail and digital bookmaker and for all racing customers, from seasoned professional punters to beginners.



They will be available direct to the punter on all 4RacingTV digital platforms and mobile applications supporting iOS and Android smart devices, allowing punters to access the content wherever they may be.

For our authorised bookmakers and TAB stores, the channels will be distributed encrypted over satellite, with encryption before month end.

An exciting feature for local trainers, jockeys, owners, punters and fans is that they will be able to record and archive every single one of their races from any 4Racing venue countrywide and create their own playlists for replay and post-race analysis.

Your favourite races and content will be shareable on Facebook and Twitter and downloadable to your smart phones.

Both channels will have live racing from around the world, including racing from Highveld Racing’s Turffontein and Vaal Racecourses, Cape Racing’s Kenilworth and Durbanville Racecourses, as well as Nelson Mandela Bay Racing’s Fairview Racecourse. There will also be two-minute tipping previews shown in between all local 4Racing races from some of the country’s top tipsters and racing experts.

Discussions are ongoing to include KwaZulu Natal’s racing.

The channels will also feature top live international racing from Australia, Asia’s Hong Kong, Dubai and Singapore, Europe’s United Kingdom, Ireland, Sweden and France, the United States and Canada and from Mauritius, Kenya and Zimbabwe, with new international racing currently being explored.



Punters will have access to a live race every 10-15 minutes starting at 04h00 and ending at midnight every day, with info and tips given by various local and international correspondents on the line and previews and interviews from the course.

Global Racing 1 and Global Racing 2 will provide all the tote betting info required on screen, accompanied by a state of the art graphics system giving punters all the essential info they need to place their bets.

“Global Racing 1 and Global Racing 2 has been specifically programmed to meet the requirements and expectations of our punters. The curation team, now led by experienced industry veteran Dominic Zaki, have engaged and researched what our local punters want, whether engaging with the content in bookmakers retail stores, our tab stores and/or via our respective digital platforms. The channels have been expanded to accommodate more content from our international racing partners and of course our local content,” says Stephen Watson, head of 4Racing.TV.

“We will ensure this is supported by all the key Computaform and betting data, tips and expert opinion, whilst covering all the on screen elements that inform our punters betting decisions. Our new graphics technology stack will play a key role in bringing this to life. We commit to polishing and refining the channels continuously and evolving them to meet the growing needs of established and new punters and of course our valued bookmaker partners. Feedback channels and further engagements with channel users will contribute significantly to this and we look forward to working with everyone to rebuild this incredible sport and its products,” added Watson.

The channels will be available to retail via the existing distribution to set-top boxes and via digital integrations with bookmaker partners.

Direct access to consumers will be supported by a dedicated 4Racing OTT offering, supporting all major web browsers and Smart Phones and Tablets, with Smart TV applications launching later in the year.

Global Racing 1 and Global Racing 2 will also feature extensive coverage from premier events such as the Cape Town Met in partnership with World Sports Betting, L’Ormarins Queens Plate and World Sports Betting Gauteng Summer Cup, as well as top international races such as the Dubai World Cup, Epsom Derby, Kentucky Derby and the Melbourne Cup.

Coverage will kick off early morning starting with harness and flat racing from Australia, followed by late morning/midday race meetings from Hong Kong, Zimbabwe and Singapore.

From midday to early afternoon every local race meeting taking place at all 4Racing venues will be available, as well as racing in Mauritius, Sweden or Kenya.

No KZN racing on their channels when introduced. The mind boggles.

They want to cover alot of foreign centres even the Kentucky Derby but....

Bob, please inform the powers, its winter in USA. NYRA, New York tracks are more likely to get cancelled than the tropical climate of Gulfstream, Florida. Plus Gulfstream has larger fields due to it being their Championship meet which includes the Pegasus this month January 2022 and the Florida Derby in April 2022. But the powers have Aqueduct the last couple meetings for Jackpots and Quartets. They cover USA, Tab 4 Racing, but hardly ever give Fixed Odds. They need to get the house in order.

I'm available to help them for Foreign centres :)

Also commingling of UK swingers must stop asap. No value at all. Can they commingle when they have World Pools due to Hong Kong betting millions into it like Royal Ascot.

So am I just plain stupid? Does this mean the end of channel 249 as is. The same question that Bob asked.. is this going to be removed from normal television channels and only available on streaming and laptops/mobile phones? Maybe im lost but if this is the case it's a massive let down and imo a bad mistake. You can improve all you like but you need to make it available to everyone at no extra cost to everyone !! Like I say I may be confused so please correct me if I'm wrong. I've been in this game in every way possible over a long time and this just seems crazy. Just my opinion.

Saint Tropez on topic Quality of pictures on Tellytrack?
I stand to be corrected but the rumor mill has it that Live racing will continue on DSTV but on another channel. No more 249 but another channel which is currently being tested. Won't be called Tellytrack anymore but 4Racing channel (Do not know if this will include KZN racing).

The digital streams will also be launched as per the press release

Don't *** make it harder for me to watch the venues that I currently watch on TT and then issue a long press release trying to tell me otherwise, but then not even mention the EXISTING racing channel in your press release.
