Racing Post Greyhound TV
Racing Post Greyhound TV offers live greyhound racing on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights on Sky Channel 212 and Freesat 401 from a number of greyhound tracks up and down the country.
A venture that first aired on December 9, 2011, it is hosted by the Racing Post, but is in co-operation with Bet365, Betfair, Coral, William Hill and Ladbrokes and offers punters two live meetings each night and covers some of the leading action over the weekend.
With Sky Sports covering the main competitions throughout the year, the addition of RPGTV certainly hands greyhound racing another avenue to broadcast the sport and early signs have shown that it has been an instant success.
