New racing channel to show simulcast feeds
« Return to News
Each racetrack in the package will have its own dedicated channel, allowing viewers to watch the same live, uninterrupted simulcast feed as is shown in commercial wagering establishments. The simulcast feed will include full wagering information, paddock shots, and post parades. Depending upon the time of year and the number of racetracks operating the package will include as many as 700 live races daily. DISH Network subscribers will be able to watch all of the exciting racing action for the everyday low price of $49.99 per month.
In addition to the 80 channel package, DISH Network viewers will have the opportunity to subscribe to a \"Best of RTN\" package. The \"Best of RTN\" package will consist of the live simulcast feeds of 12 of the top RTN racetracks running at any given time. The \"Best of RTN\" package will cost $29.99 per month.
Both the 80 channel and \"Best Of RTN\" packages are expected to launch in September, 2009. (DISH Network)
