New Zealand’s racing channel Trackside is moving off Freeview and on to Sky from April 14.
The move is part of planned improvements to the content of the two TAB racing channels – Trackside and TAB TV.
Trackside said: “This will allow us to broadcast new and improved racing content for your viewing pleasure – including magazine-style features, extended pre and post-race coverage for feature events, and additional races which are not currently shown on television.”
Trackside joined the Freeview service on December 1, 2010.
The New Zealand Racing Board announced late last year that it was preparing to consolidate its broadcasting operations, Trackside and TAB TV, from Petone, Avalon and Ellerslie to a purpose built facility in Auckland later this year.
