TVG, Comcast Cable Partner in New Jersey

Edited press release

TVG has partnered with Comcast Cable to make the network available to its digital cable subscribers throughout New Jersey. The agreement makes TVG the only horseracing network currently available to Comcast TV customers in the Garden State, and the only network where New Jersey residents can watch races from Monmouth Park and Meadowlands.

Beginning May 8, Comcast began delivering TVG throughout New Jersey on Digital Classic Channel 260. Comcast customers in New Jersey now receive the full lineup of TVG programming, including live horseracing coverage, analysis, and updates.
The partnership brings the network’s total U.S. distribution to more than 27 million households.

Through Comcast and other distribution platforms, TVG is now available to almost all residents of New Jersey who subscribe to cable and satellite services. Additionally, TVG programming reaches millions more homes through regional networks under the Fox Sports Net banner and through international partners reaching more than 20 million households overseas.

“Comcast is committed to providing our customers throughout New Jersey with a diverse range of programming options to cover their wide and varied interests,” said Greg Arnold, regional senior vice president for Comcast Cable New Jersey. “The majority of our customers in New Jersey already are digital cable users, and we are pleased to offer them TVG’s world-class racing coverage.”

For the first time in its history, TVG is offering exclusive coverage of the entire racing season from Monmouth, home of the 2007 Breeders’ Cup World Championships, as well as Meadowlands, widely considered to be the nation’s premier harness track.
