Channel 4 wins rights to broadcast UK horse racing

This entry was posted on Monday, March 19th, 2012

It was announced this morning that the BBC has lost out on the rights to broadcast the Derby, Royal Ascot and the Grand National. Channel 4 will now be the exclusive broadcaster of horse racing in the UK from 2013 onwards, in what is apparently at least a 4 year deal. I guess this means we’ll be seeing more live odds shown in the adverts between races – that a good thing? Combined with a mobile app, it’s pretty handy if you fancy a punt, but then again, not having any breaks is kinda nice too…
