The New Zealand Racing Board operates two television channels, TAB Trackside 1 and TAB Trackside 2, which broadcasts live coverage of domestic and international racing seven days a week from out Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch studios. Currently a fleet of 4 digital Outside Broadcast Vans (OB’s) service more than 1000 race meetings around the country a year with regional crews and presenters.

Our two TV channels were re-launched as TAB Trackside 1 (SKY Channel 62) and TAB Trackside 2 (SKY Channel 63) in 2014. On-screen graphics provide customers with the current odds and information on what races are coming up on both channels to help viewers identify which channel they are watching. Each channel has a dominant colour - Trackside 1 is blue and Trackside 2 is orange.

Trackside Radio gives race followers access to comprehensive coverage of all live racing from around Australasia.

The station brings listeners the wider racing story – the personalities, the heroes, the spectacular achievements of our horses, our jockeys and drivers and trainers. And on the weekends, listeners are able to enjoy a range of sports and racing shows along with live racing from 11am through to midnight.

Monday to Friday the day starts at 6am with The Kick Off , a four hour show dedicated to sport featuring interviews with the newsmakers and international correspondents who are amongst the action.

Trackside Radio goes with you wherever you are by being available on the Rova App which is available through your app store.
