The Horse Racing Channel, one of Britain's two new planned dedicated horseracing television channels, has dropped the idea of charging subscribers a monthly fee, at least initially, and intends to launch as a free-to-air service, maybe by the end of the month.
The longest running of the two British horseracing television channels, the Racing Channel, closed Jan. 31 after more than seven years on the air.
The new free British racing television channel, run by the "attheraces" consortium, will launch on time May 1 with 14 hours of broadcasting a day from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
