Australian Horseracing Channel TVN Plans To Move From Foxtel To Digital Spectrum
Published October 7, 2013
Australian horseracing channel TVN "plans to move from the Foxtel platform to the digital spectrum," according to Chris Roots of THE AGE. The media company, which includes TVN, a couple of form publications and a website, "is owned by Australian Turf Club." It is "perfectly placed to take advantage of the new media landscape." The preferred option would place TVN on free-to-air TV "as part of the rollout of the digital spectrum" in '15. It means the idea of Victoria and New South Wales racing controlling the rights "could reap a massive return for the industry in terms of exposure." The company "has a free-to-air association with Channel Seven." It is believed TVN officials "have already sounded out Seven about a permanent place on its digital spectrum" (THE AGE, 10/7).
