Horse Racing Radio Live Australian Broadcasts.
Live Horse Racing Radio Broadcasts in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin, Hobart and Canberra.
One of the slightly ironic elements of modern technology is that it can sometimes provide us with a reminder that some of the old technology was very well suited to certain applications.
Horse racing supplies a case in point. While it is possible to stream video of practically every race on the calendar, or watch them on live TV via cable or satellite programming services, radio has re-emerged as a viable method of supplying racing coverage. Some would say that listening to races on the radio is an ideal way to take advantage of radio's strong suits. Combining the best of old time live racing radio with the benefits of Internet broadcasting is a marriage made in heaven.
The Internet has most definitely altered the way horse racing is presented and consumed. High speed Internet connections and powerful computers enable us to bet on racing in a way that was unimaginable just a few years ago. Online bookmakers compete so fiercely for punters' dollars that deals and enticements are phenomenal. Add in the powerful mental images that a competent live racing radio broadcast offers and the result is nothing less than pure bliss.
Modern technology has taken things a step further by making radio broadcasts of racing available around the world, whereas traditional racing radio is limited to the specific geographical area that is permissible according to the regulations governing radio station coverage areas. Not only that, but the Internet offers horse racing live radio broadcasts that can be listened to via a smart phone app.
Nowhere is this aspect of modern technology combined with older, traditional technology more appreciated than it is here in Australia .
The following is a brief introduction to a few of the possibilities open to practically every punter with a spare dollar or two.
One great thing is that many, if not all, of these broadcasts are available for free. Another is that, unlike bygone days where geography and regulation limited the range of radio transmissions, it is now easy for someone, in Perth say, to tune into the horse racing action taking place on the east coast, and vice a versa.
