TVG Reaches Cable Deals in Florida, California

TV Games Network has reached agreements with two cable television services that will carry the 24-hour horseracing and interactive wagering network.

TVG's deal with Cox Communications will see the channel become available June 10 in the central Florida communities of Ocala and Gainesville. In a separate agreement with Charter Communicaions Inc., TVG will begin airing in May in Monterey Park, California.

"Central Florida is home to one of the nation's most significant areas for breeding and raising Thoroughbreds," said Mark Wilson, president and CEO of TVG. "This launch helps TVG widen its outreach to fans and is an example of the growing relationship with Cox that we announced in March."

In addition to Florida, TVG is available on cable systems in California, Kentucky, Maryland, Louisiana, and Oregon, and via satellite on Dish Network and DirecTV.
