    Can someone explain why Sky racing show full screen of harness horses just circling before the start but as soon as they start to score up they switch to split screen so that punters can't see what their horse is doing ! Often the other half of the screen just shows an empty track or dogs or gallopers walking to the boxes.

    I want to see the score up and first 20 meters of the race in full screen as I'm sure most people do. I wonder if David Martin could get some answers from Sky about this policy.
    I know watching on trots vision will avoid this problem but my internet and phone have problems with freezing on their site.
    Don't die wondering !

    I was told that our treatment on Sky1 was pretty shabby yesterday and I was sent a copy of a post by David Martin that states the (lousy) agreement the previous administration locked us into runs for another 5yrs while other codes have separate agreements that keep them on Sky1 even if they are running late

    Yep it’s pretty sad Kev, well a disgrace really, how on earth did the previous administration think we would ever be a chance of increasing our market share when we don’t have equal billing with the other codes on Sky.

    There is a new 'Sky Racing Active' app that you can get for your phone or tablet for free for 2 months if you have a TAB account (who knows after that) which allows you to choose what code you want to watch - harness, dogs, gallops (not Vic and SA for gallops) without swapping around between Sky 1 and 2. It has other features, alerts etc

    Sky Racing Active will be free for the first few months but after that I think it will be somewhere between $2 and $5 per month. I wonder if we will still be able to get sky2 on our phones and computers for free once the fee starts. I suspect they will try and force people over to the paid service. The same service needs to be available to foxtell subscribers.
