    Shutdown Alert: HPItv

    It's been annoucned for a little bit now, but not mentioned here. HPItv announced that it is shuttering in April. Interestingly enough, it has several channels - HPItv (flagship), HPItv Odds, HPItv Canada, HPItv International, and HPItv West; however, only HPItv and HPItv Odds will shut down. Apparently, those two channels operate under a Cat B licence, but the reminaing channels operate under a PPV licence and International, West, and Canada will continue on. Woodbine Entertainment, the owners, don't own a PPV licence, so I'm not sure how they have these channels in operation under a PPV licence, other than to say maybe they have a licensing agreement with an existing PPV service and they've branded those channels HPItv. Maybe they're using Sportsnet PPV licence?

    Technically, its not shutting down completely as they will continue to operate 3 channels. I wonder why they are shutting down the 2 main channels and keeping the rest going?!

    Not really a big surprise IMO, I would think most horse racing fans (i.e. gamblers ) prefer to go and watch races in person not watch them on TV.
