4Racing and Gold Circle reach interim agreement to air KwaZulu-Natal content on Racing 240

Johannesburg, 2 March 2022

4Racing and Gold Circle would like to advise that they have reached an interim agreement that KwaZulu-Natal racing will be available on Racing 240 with immediate effect.

The parties are committed to continuing their engagements to conclude an equitable and sustainable long-term agreement for a unified broadcast platform, for the benefit of the South African horseracing industry.

Is this agreement reciprocal for 4Racing to be shown on GallopTV?

What has changed is that HD GallopTV has been born on Free To Air. Furthermore, I think 4Racing should also move to GallopTV thereby opening up a new distribution channel to market horseracing to the masses. Iā€™m not sure if this was considered before.

So not a lot has changed - unless the 'interim agreement' falls away next week - 4 Racing has stated that they want to reach the 'masses' via SABC - but as I understand it, a FTA decoder would also be needed - so GallopTV could be another alternative :unsure:

Fixed odds not being scrolled does not bother be nearly as much as having to listen to the same waffle that we have become used to the last 30 years - not sure about the financials, but I would prefer having different 'presenters' on shifts - say one week on, two weeks off, etc. I think most would agree that the show dished up on LQP and MET day (and to a lessor extent on Cape Derby day) was pleasing to the eye - so more of that is needed imo - but as I say not sure who would pay for that

Strangely I prefer listening to races than watching them. Watched maybe two/three races this year. And now my sound feed is gone used to get it on Teletrack website as well as my UK races later in the evenings. Any suggestions for a sound feed thats free?

i find Gallop TV works really well. I have streamed then most of today.

And when i got home i Cast it from the tablet to the TV.

4 Racing nowhere near Gallop TV at this stage.
