Racing UK launches on YouView 231


Racing UK is now available to an additional two and half million households following an agreement with YouView and Racecourse Media Group (parent company of Racing UK).

The leading horseracing channel, which broadcasts racing from 37 of the leading tracks in the UK, can be accessed on YouView via channel 231. This follows on from the previous successful launch on Freeview.

YouView is available via BT TV, TalkTalk TV and Plusnet TV as well as stand-alone retail boxes.

Clive Cottrell, Director of Marketing at Racecourse Media Group, said: “Hopefully this exciting new agreement with YouView will appeal to those viewers who aren’t satellite or cable customers and therefore open up a new audience for us.”

The connected TV solution is an innovative combination of an IPTV-delivered video stream and interactive graphics, enabling the viewer to watch but also keep up to date with results, news and racecard information.

Prospective Racing UK customers can sign up to the channel via or by calling 0844 472 5566. Any existing customers can update their viewing options to additionally watch through YouView by logging into their account and updating “Viewing Options”.
