Bookmaker ordered to shut down bet-to-view service
Numerous media reports indicate that Ladbrokes Coral has been ordered to shut down its bet-to-view service following an unresolved dispute with The Racing Partnership (TRP) over the broadcast of pictures from six Arena Racing Company (ARC) racetracks.
TRP has initiated legal action claiming misuse of data and the unauthorised use of commentaries in Ladbrokes and Coral betting shops, The Racing Post reports.
According to that report, Ladbrokes and Coral have had their licensing rights withdrawn by At The Races (ATR), an ARC subsidiary, which effectively shuts down the online streaming of racing from 22 UK racing tracks in their retail betting shops.
Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.
We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.
His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
