TAB TV and Trackside were relaunched as TAB Trackside 1 and TAB Trackside 2 in August 2014, extending our racing coverage across both channels and enabling us to show up to 5,000 additional races a year, which were previously not broadcast.
It's no longer a one horse race, as both TAB Trackside 1 and TAB Trackside 2 offer you more variety of Thoroughbred, Harness and Greyhound racing.
We also have more pre and post-race coverage, access to extra on-screen information, live odds and new 'feature shows' - with both local and international content.
From 14 April 2015, Trackside Radio is introducing a new breakfast radio line-up! From 6am-10am weekdays, tune in to The Kick Off for your morning sports preview and hot TAB odds and tips fix. If you miss the good stuff in the mornings, just tune in weekdays from 10am-11am to catch up with The Best of The Kick Off.
On the weekends, you'll be able to enjoy a range of sports and racing shows, including current favs Starting Gates, On the Sidelines, and World of Football, as well as exciting new shows The Two Halves, The All American Sports Show, While You Were Sleeping, Sunday Form and Tracktalk Nationwide. Live racing takes over the airwaves from 11am daily.
Our flagship breakfast show, The Kick Off, is hosted by veteran sports broadcaster Glen Larmer. Joining Glen each morning as co-host will be some of the most respected names in New Zealand sport, connecting with the resources of the TAB, and the greater media industry.
On air weekdays from 6am, The Kick Off features sports news and updates, looking back at sports fixtures from the previous day, and looking forward to events and fixtures that day across all sporting codes. We'll also have TAB odds and tips information straight from the bookies.
