Insight Adds Churchill Downs Racing
Good news if you're a horse racing fan and a Northern Kentucky resident. Insight cable will offer a free preview of the Horse Racing Television network, which carries Churchill Downs races. The freebie starts Saturday, when Churchill Downs opens, and runs through its spring meet that ends July 8. Churchill Downs owns 50% of HRTV.
Digital cable customers will receive programming 24/7 on Channel 564. Basic cable subscribers will get racing noon-8 p.m. on Channel 01 (on analog converters) or Channel 99 (cable ready TVs).
The Insight announcement notes that HRTV is not carried by DirecTV.
