Trackside will be leaving Freeview in favour of Sky + Online Streaming only
It will be moving from Trackside+Tab channels to Trackside 1 and Trackside 2
Since most motels/hotels currently offer trackside as a channel I doubt they will pay for another satellite decoder to show trackside so they may lose out on viewers
As part of planned improvements to the content of the two TAB racing channels, Trackside will be moved off Freeview and onto SKY from 14 April 2014.
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.
For TAB customers who do not have SKY, we are offering a special deal - free installation of a satellite dish and SKY digital decoder and a free SKY package valued at $18.70 per month. This SKY package gives you access to the free-to-air channels and the two racing channels. The package is free until 31 December 2014 to TAB customers who watch Trackside via Freeview and who do not presently subscribe to SKY.
Customers who already have SKY and use the second household TV to watch Trackside on Freeview are eligible for a standard installation of a second Multiroom decoder for no charge and three months free Multiroom*.
