Friend told me few weeks ago tab trackside on kordia tv, so today just checked and there it is channel 200 kordia normally just scenery with price for hire $250 per hour. Don't know why or how long trackside has been free to air and if this is regularly on or only for short trial period.

Trackside 1 was there on Boxing Day but was missing when I checked again, days later.


Its on Spark Sport of course. The few times I watched via Spark Sport, Melbourne Cup, NZ Trotting Cup the feed buffered and was really unwatchable. I'm on Spark's finely tuned network so I would be interested in an explanation given that the Akamai issues had been supposedly resolved.

Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone 6s, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

It's being used as a pop-up channel by TAB for major races over the summer/xmas season. Unfortunately completely gone from Gisborne(JDA) area too :(

This pop up channel should be for the horse sales at Karaka in the coming days. If you have some $$$ to spend on a horse, this is the one channel to watch

Thanks for info just seen has karaka sales on so is just popup but when watching yesterday trackside picture was great but sound not good lot of times cutting out.Previous i used Kodi add on to watch but not very good and when watching on computer through tab account video always buffering and very hard to watch that was using spark ufb but since end of December far better so Tab must have fixed something there as no more buffering.
