I ended my RacingTV subscription because

1. Not interested in Irish racing
2. Split screens

I dont mind irish racing being on but i want to know what the latest going news is at
Catterick before i have to sit through a preview of a nothing card at down royal
Which features 3 or 4 people on track

I do find the Irish coverage takes more air time than the equivalent Gb cards but recently they have been higher quality so fair enough.

Watch Sky racing with the sound off until race about to start and on here for RTV when needed.

Good idea that Different.  More people should do it and forget the waffle..

Think my RTV offer is up at Easter.. Does anyone know if I have to do something to cancel or will they take £25 through the DD ?

Split screens ,if there is two meetings in the U.K. you will have split screens simply as, blaming Irish racing is silly , we only race 3/4 times a week . Instead of complaining about it you should count your blessings , think of all the Cheltenham winners you'll be seeing yesterday and today..

Chapman is the only one I have to mute.

im sure the programme director thinks people might prefer looking at grade 1 races worth 80000e  than looking at sellers worth £2000

Kavvie yes and rightly so, but there wasnt many of those races at down royal this week

I'd say the prize money was twice of the U.K. racing and D.R..would be one of the poorer courses we have prize money wise...
Report the penguin February 7, 2021 3:19 PM GMT
Its possible to give a going and conditions update from each course before 30 minutes of preview start
