Victorian Racing Returns To Sky Channel
Tabcorp Holdings Limited announced on Friday that it had reached agreement on a media rights deal for Victorian thoroughbred racing. The agreement provides Tabcorp's subsidiary, Sky Channel Pty Ltd, with domestic, digital and international rights for Victorian thoroughbred racing. Victorian thoroughbred racing resumed broadcasting on Sky Racing1 and Sky Racing2 on Saturday and will be available via tab.com.au and TAB apps in the near future. The arrangements also enable Sky Racing to distribute Victorian thoroughbred racing to overseas markets. The broadcast arrangements expire in 2020. "It is pleasing to have completed arrangements with our Victorian thoroughbred industry partners for their media rights. We have achieved a positive outcome for Tabcorp, the racing industry, retail venue partners and our customers," said Tabcorp Managing Director and CEO, David Attenborough. All Australian racing vision is now available on the Sky Racing broadcast and TAB digital platforms. Tabcorp expects the overall financial impact of the new package of Victorian media rights, which now includes digital, will not be materially different to previous arrangements.
