Racing TV was successfully launched as a subscription channel in 2004 (formerly Racing UK) and now numbers 37 racecourses as shareholders. With most of the major courses, Racing TV is assured the finest Flat and National Hunt racing that the sport can offer. As Racing TV grew, several other business units and joint ventures were developed.
In order to reflect the growing and maturing business, Racecourse Media Group (RMG) has become the parent company with Racing TV as the principal customer-facing business unit. Racing TV is best-known for its subscription TV channel broadcasting on Sky, Virgin, Freeview and YouView to 50,000 residential subscriptions. The channel can also choose to broadcast free to air for certain events to a potential audience of some 12 million homes. In addition, more than 6,000 pubs and clubs in the UK and Ireland subscribe to Racing TV.
