A lot of forumites have called for it. They are wrong of course.

"RMG are happyto examine the possibility of a merger so long as their profits remain the same"

if pics are slowed , i am unsure if profits would remain the same

also, RUK made great efforts to keep the picture speed as fast as they could when switching to HD , so i think RUK know the importance of speeds .

i have had a few chats people at betfair in the last year or so  , and ATR/SIS basically will not improve speeds even if they could , as they are owned by bookmakers who are rivals with betfair/paddypower and do not want to help them out, it's as simple as that

Who's to say that LV would be any use, in any case it would be the end of RUK, certainly for I/R players who wouldn't be paying any more subs.

that's an easy cop out from BF, pablo. Wiki says ATR is owned by Sky and Arena these days.
Report jamesdean June 14, 2018 3:12 PM BST
Maybe ruk will bring their pic speeds to sky rather than vice versa
Report pablo-fanque June 14, 2018 3:13 PM BST
true TF , but i think ATR get the pics from SIS , and it is SIS that is owned by the bookmakers

they'll have to get faster to avoid all the clashes
Report TheFear June 14, 2018 3:15 PM BST
i know what you mean but i still think it's a Betfair cop out. Relinquishes them from all responsibility. TRP/Arc are in the mix too and SIS do pics for RUK now.

where does the lv feed originate from?
Report sparrow June 14, 2018 3:20 PM BST
Betfair are also bookmakers these days and in competition with the exchange.
Report TheFear June 14, 2018 3:21 PM BST
think SIS duffy
Report duffy June 14, 2018 3:25 PM BST
If SIS supply lv, why aren't they slowing the speeds like they do with ATR.
Report pablo-fanque June 14, 2018 3:37 PM BST
1 or 2 years ago , ATR owned the rights to streaming the pics over the internet  , not sure how ATR get the pics but i would imagine from SIS , i have no idea who owns the rights now.

duffy , good point, i always wondered this too. you also have to wonder the politics involved when ATR show betfair prices and are sponsored by betfair .

say yarmouth today, that's on TRP not SIS and those two are at loggerheads

It'll all be alright, you can't put the genie back into the bottle.

ATR quite easily put the genie back in the bottle when they cut off the ATR Extra feed behind the red button.
