Racing UK to launch standalone channel

Horse racing broadcaster Racing UK is set to launch a standalone channel following the demise of sports pay-TV service Setanta.

The channel, which airs horse racing from courses including Aintree and Epsom Downs, was previously part of the Setanta Sports Pack. It will now negotiate carriage with pay-TV platforms BSkyB and Virgin Media for its standalone channel and will charge subscribers £20 (€23) per month, which includes the company’s online service.
