Recently read somewhere,that once a sport goes behind a paywall participation by the public wanes.

Adios to racing.

Hasn't been the case with cricket, tennis, golf where in many countries, broadcasting is by pay/subscription. Global betting on these sports is huge.

Besides, I wouldn't call it a pay wall exactly. The above mentioned sports I would say are behind a paywall because they require a subscription. Trackside channels are free to air if you have a sky dish. You can either rent a decoder from sky for $18.70 a month or buy your own for about a hundred bucks. Can't see anyone who can't afford that contributing much to racing turnover.

Why should you have to pay to basically lose money?


I tend to agree that in a place like NZ where they have no exposure. But that is the trend. And if NZ racing was attractive to viewers/punters, the complaints about paying to view would be less.
