Provisional launch of Racing Post Greyhound TV

Recently with the in co-operation of Racing Post, the facility of live broadcasting of greyhound racing on televisions was decided to be introduced. The shows held all over United Kingdom and Ireland will be broadcasted with the sponsorship of bookmakers bet 365, Coral, Ladbrokes and William Hill.

On the 25th of November 2011 racing post has declared that the provisional launch for the Racing Post Greyhound TV, will be held on the 9th of December 2011, Friday.

The meeting of Friday scheduled on the dirt track of Romford will be viewed by this new innovative technology. The fans of greyhound racing are eagerly waiting for the event, the Essex Vese Semi-Final, which is the highlighted event.

Besides the semi-final of the Essex Vase, few thrilling shows which will be held at the race course of Sunderland are also considered as the icing of the cake.

The head of the Monmore and Greyhound Stadia Crayford, Gordon Bissett thinks that Racing Post Greyhound Live TV will help in getting new lease in the industry of greyhound racing.

While explaining his view about the new technology Gordon Bissett said “The opportunity for individuals to watch their greyhounds on a television channel is a tremendous incentive for them to get involved,”

Gordon Bissett thinks that besides the online service of presenting the results of the race, our company can attain more number of fans and viewers, if the Greyhound Live TV service is introduced. Introduction of such technology can greatly affect the industry and can play a major role in its increase.  

While discussing the viewer’s interest in the sport Gordon Bissett aforementioned “What stops people going racing is their own lack of enthusiasm and there is no evidence that showing the races live will reduce the propensity to attend. As a sport, we have to sell ourselves far better and this is a fantastic opportunity to do so – I’m hoping we can rekindle many local links and get people and businesses to support their local greyhound tracks by showing just what we have to offer.”

The live broadcasting of the meeting held in Newcastle will be viewed on the 26th of November 2011, Saturday from 7:15 pm till 10:45 pm.

This free facility of live streaming will also be available on the official website of Racing Post.
