OT: Fox Sports 1 signs multi-year deal with Jockey Club (Thoroughbred racing)

http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/201...source=twitter

Quote:
FOX Sports and The Jockey Club announced today a multi-year agreement to air prominent graded stakes races starting in 2014 from many of horse racing’s best known tracks on FOX Sports 1, America’s new sports network launching Saturday, Aug. 17.
The newly created package of nationally televised races consists of up to 10 telecasts per year. Each telecast includes two top stakes races featuring the leading horses in North America.

Another sport that ESPN does not do anything (unless it's a Triple Crown or Breeder's Cup race).


Fox going up against NBC (and their coverage of Triple Crown, etc.).

Well, I'll be able to tell you Aug 17th since I have SPEED right now

All I know right now is my cable provider (Shaw) switched SPEED to another channel number which has been down ever since TSN2 was created (TSN-ALT). I don't really know what that means though...

NHL will sign with FS next TV contract. I guarantee it.

And Fox continues to pillage ESPN to great effect.

What way is NBCSN going? Distribution is at an all time high. The NHL is better off there than they would be at FS1... the benefits are the same as they always have been: being top dog.

Also how can the NHL go to FS1 with their next TV deal but not for another 20 years?

If sports betting is ever legalized broadly across America then that could give horse racing a boost. The trend is towards more legalization of gambling. The arguments against it have lost almost all moral weight now that nearly every state govt operates a lottery scam and every other Indian reservation has a casino. So now nobody is arguing against gambling on principle, just that only the govt and well-connected people in certain favored ethnic groups should get the profits.

Stupid laws can last a long, long time, of course, so maybe the current insanity will continue for decades more.

I have Speed right now on my carrier (Shaw-Manitoba) and was able to watch their FS1 preview show which aired a few days ago. I really hope to get it....

In America, can you only bet at the track?

I agree, horse racing is pretty awesome. A sport that takes 2 minutes to watch the whole thing? Don't mind if I do.

We're well overdue for another golden age too, probably will never see anything like the 70's but there should be multiple triple crown winners within the next 10-15 years. It's been way too long. I'd love to follow a superhorse through its entire career.

Yes, but many venues allow betting on races at other tracks.

(However, I'd guess that Vegas and Atlantic City allow race betting as well.)

NBC appears to have adopted a strategy of offering exclusive deals to sports struggling for attention. That's a good strategy for them now that Fox has entered the market and shown more of a willingness to work with ESPN and Turner. NBCSN is growing just fine.

But you can't bet online? In Canada I use a great website called horseplayerinteractive that is run by the Woodbine group that allows me probably access to 30-50 tracks over a week. Nothing like that legal online for US horse bettors?

I think it varies by state. Illinois has OTBs all over the place.

Why? They are developing quite a history and partnership with NBC.

Maybe the NHL also signs a deal with FS, but I certainly wouldn't be so glib as to guarantee they do so.

What should be legal in America is betting from home from your computer, tablet, or smartphone. I should be able to watch a race on my home TV, decide to put $50 on a horse, bring up the website or app where I have a betting account, and make a quick bet. That's not legal.
That should be legal for any sport, not just racing.

Here here! You would love the legal access to horse raceing I get from HPI.com. Unlimited race replays for watching past races, live video of every track, and every major/minor track in NA is represented.Live toteboards that are easy to read are great too.

I couldn't imagine a world where I can only go down to my track to bet Del Mar or Saratoga legally.

Does FOX have a shot at any major tennis tournament? I know Wimbledon just signed a huge deal with ESPN so you can scratch that.

So NBCSN has NHL (every damn playoff game + spill over channels), BPL, The Triple Crown, College Football (the legit College Football is still on ESPN - sorry guys), Friday Night College Hockey, Formula 1 & Indy Car & just signed a 9 year deal with Nascar wtf does NBCSN need to do to prove that they're a player ?
