Think that will happen Pete, but that will be part 2 of the message saying that discussions very advanced and looking to complete within 6 month's 

The other aspect the Geo blocking will be within a couple of months I am picking

It will be from the conclusion of no price deductions for scr.

Like living in Russia, the opposite should be happening to revive racing, not choke it.

Last communication from TAB on Sept 19, was that they were expecting to identify a short list of potential partners by Xmas, so surely they are not in a position to announce anything

If that's the case it will be probably be late 2023 before they manage to stitch anything up.

These people are basically incompetent.

It's exactly what Max has said. We won't be able to bet with agencies outside NZ.

Another stab in the back for the free market.

Just how do they go about that. Surely in this technological age there will be ways to circumnavigate the system. I remember being in Perth and my son had the knowhow to trick the system into thinking he was in NZ so I could get a bet on the NZ TAB. 

It borders on human rights abuse.

Well it is possible to use a VPN but companies like Bet365 are wise to this in the main. They block based on your IP address so obviously if you managed to use a VPN and look as if you were in Sydney then it might work. But the other thing is that they keep lists of IP addresses of the VPNs so you need to keep moving servers to try and stay one step ahead. It may or may not work.

Don't some offshore betting agencies already pay a fee for betting on NZ races?

Yep - but they will believe they can get all the punter loss rather than the fee (which is generally less than the punter loss). But a small % of something is better than 100% of nothing.

This from Aug 2018

"The deeply distressed state of New Zealand's racing industry quickly became evident to us, as did the resilience and dedication of those who work and invest in it," said Mr Messara.

"This gives me the confidence that comprehensive action by the Minister will be strongly supported by you all and that the New Zealand industry can have the much brighter future it deserves." 

He identified prizemoney as the greatest influencer on the state of racing and estimated stakes would need to double, if New Zealand was to become a competitive player on the international market.

"However prizemoney has to be funded by recurring revenue," he said. "My review includes a series of reforms that I believe will enable a doubling of stakes money.

"And that increase needs to be right through the system - from the smallest races right up to the group and listed programme. We need to keep people in the game."
