Channel 4 is to stream the three-day Aintree Grand National meeting live on its website. The transmission has been made possible through an agreement with pay-TV channel Racing UK, even though the BBC holds the broadcast rights for the prestigious meeting. The online rights are being geographically restricted to the UK and will only be available through Channel 4, Racing UK and the Racing Post.
Seven races will be streamed daily including coverage of the Grand National on April 14. Viewers will be required to register with the Racing Post website in order to access the coverage.
