With immediate effect Tellytrack will not be able to show races from Hong Kong.
Tellytrack CEO John Stuart clarified the new position in a public statement: "The Hong Kong Jockey Club as a principle do not want bookmakers, whether in SA or anywhere else, betting on their product.
"As such, and as we still have bookmakers potentially receiving the Hong Kong pictures, including the Phumelela owned Betting World, the picture has to be removed from all channels. This will continue until an alternative technical solution can be found to allow TAB bettors to continue to enjoy the product".
Tellytrack are consequently giving notification that televised screenings of Wednesday and weekend racing from both the HKJC racecourses of Sha Tin and Happy Valley have been discontinued pending further developments.
