I don’t know what you call it now, don’t care that much to be honest

Surely its days are numbered?

very recently downgrade of its content as in no more Monmore, Hove

now the valley, Harlow, etc

The presenters , the pundits

With one or two exceptions the majority are piss poor, hardly surprising,  just because you’ve been an owner or a trainer doesn’t qualify you to successfully present the show or be a regular pundit ( once  in a while yes that’s ok)

If (more likely when) it goes will it have an effect on turnover with the bookmakers, once the dust settles I’d guess no (you can nearly always watch a race  on your phone or tablet)

What it might do is encourage a bit of an increase in track attendance.


Your thoughts?

the whole of greyhound racing is a total mess, prize money a joke, you can't get a decent bet on in shops or online (apart from betfair), no betting shows in the shops practically until they start loading, endless graded sprint races / handicaps, no replays available for the pgr tracks, i only bet at hove and if replays aren't available soon that's me done.

all pgr have done is stick the word premier in front of the words greyhound racing, they could have just put new and improved recipe, it means the same thing = absolutely nothing, if you want people to go greyhound racing,  bet on it and watch it you have to get the word out there, there should be adverts in every betting shop with the website address / sky channel of every channel that it's viewable on, adverts in the redtops, bring back the 24 dog comps that were so popular at hackney back in the day, bookmakers should be made to take a reasonable bet on any dog minimum £25 that would be a start, there's good money staked on greyhound races every day, as i've discussed on another thread and the prize money is nothing but an insult, we badly need to attract new blood into this sport and the crap prize money for graded racing is badly holding the sport back, if this was raised to say bottom grade £300 to the winner and top grade £600 to the winner, this would instantly attract new owners, breeders would breed more dogs, trainers could charge more and increase their staff and betting turnover would increase, everyone's a winner.

from my understanding that is because the new red button content is streamed and not analogue as it always has been so requires an internet connection.....i am having trouble with sky q box where sometimes the red button works and sometimes it doesn't......fook knows why....have now just set up an ipad for the video using https://www.premiergreyhoundracing.co.uk/ and computer for betfair.....

I stopped watching when they lost Hove, Monmore to name but two tracks.
Replacing it with Valley, graded at Clonmel is a huge turn off.

The presenters looked like they were just grinding it out for the regular income it provided but completely disinterested and who can blame them?

You could consider it as an act of mercy to finally pull the plug.

A sad state of affairs , It was obvious some time Back that Viewers were no longer Tuning in , The new schedule basically a disaster ,the Final nail , of Little interest bar Track followers ..
Were some very good Times back in the day , and During the Lockdown caper was certainly something to look forward to ..

Don't know how all this Media Rights Business Works , but surely a show 3 or 4 nights a week could be set up by someone ?
Actually covering decent racing .. its sad demise certainly nothing to be Cheering about

Perhaps an Independent group of Punters Dog followers could set Something up ?

I'm sure some of the books would still pay for Advertising ,If the product was presented properly

As I said I don't know too much regarding that side of Things,and what Evenings at what tracks could be covered

The PGR is sub standard to say the least , Again just about watchable if you follow one track

The Derby is Just going to be silly , Someone has to cover it Properly ,Regardless of what thoughts some may have on the track

when you think all those years ago when we were funking for walthamstow streams then barking mad then gone to the dogs then the loss of sky greyhound productions presented by jeff sterling the introduction of RPGTV as a professional greyhound channel was a revelation....i know it may of affected attendances but they were ruined when race times went from 7.30pm starts to 5.50 and earlier......will be a shame to see it go but once they stopped showing tracks i follow was only oxford that held any interest......i hope now there is no competition PGR look to invest in their video product and employ some producers who are able to provide a better and more consistent product.....

Premier Greyhound Racing has launched its much-awaited archive of greyhound racing action on its website greyhounds.attheraces.com.

Managing director Garry Nash said: “We are committed to delivering the best possible service to greyhound fans to promote the sport, and free live archive video is the latest addition to our comprehensive online service.

“Now fans will be able to link directly from the results section of the site to archive videos of the full race completely free of charge.

“We are continuing to develop the service and have further enhancements planned over the coming months.”

The launch of archive videos follows a number of improvements including the use of Sky Sports Racing presenters including Darrell Williams, Dani Jackson and Tony Ennis as continuity announcers between races.

PGR is a joint venture between Arena Racing (Arc) and Entain. Between them, the companies own nine tracks – Crayford, Hove, Monmore, Romford, Central Park, Perry Barr, Newcastle, Sunderland and Nottingham – with Arc managing the media rights for a further five independent tracks in Kinsley, Pelaw Grange, Sheffield, Swindon and Yarm

It’s still badly implemented as you can only watch each race via the actual result page

If you are on the today race form, then each of the greyhound races should have an attached link

It’s a right pain to watch a few races

The whole set up behind the red button, no HD and presenters I think at home interrupting each other at times

It’s awful to watch to be honest
