As the runners and riders take to the course for Saturday’s Grand National at Aintree, the race will be available in around 600 million homes worldwide.
Working with The Jockey Club, which owns and operates Aintree Racecourse and stages the Grand National, Racecourse Media Group (RMG) and HBA Media have secured a wide range of broadcasters, including some who will air the race for the first time.
According to RMG, 30 broadcasters have signed up to carry the world’s most famous horse race, including ITV in the UK, Racing TV, NENT, Polsat, Sony Pictures Network in India, and Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
Dickon White, The Jockey Club’s regional director for the North West, said: “The Randox Grand National is the biggest jumps race in the world, if not the biggest race in the world, and merits a truly worldwide TV audience – which I’m delighted to say is exactly what we’ve got. I hope our extensive list of broadcasters, both new and old to the event, enjoy one of the great sporting spectacles.”
The race will also be available to watch on YouTube, via the Racing Post’s channel.
Its coverage will employ graphics built in Singular.live alongside Reality Check Systems’ (RCS) Cobb control application, which allows users to call up templates and populate them with live data from data feeds funnelled through Foundation, RCS’s cloud-based data service.
