He said, "The issue with television at the moment is that we continue to be shuffled around on the different 7 channels. To be frank, we’re really looking forward to being well promoted and we’re actually looking forward to being part of a network that wants to be part of it." Under the new broadcasting deal, only six rounds — Adelaide, Townsville, Sandown, Bathurst, Gold Coast and Sydney — "will be seen live on Ten (and simulcast on Foxtel)." Warburton, a former TV exec, "is adamant the move away from live free-to-air races would be offset by consistent programming."
Likening the Foxtel coverage to its National Rugby League and Australian Football League programming, he said, "There’ll be something each weekend and also during the week, on free-to-air and on Fox." SMH
