Royal Ascot Races on TV

In the UK and Ireland, the 2024 Royal Ascot meet will be aired on ITV, Sky Sports Racing, and Virgin Media. ITV Racing, continuing as the host broadcaster for the eighth consecutive year, will produce daily five-hour programs from June 18-22. These programs will be available on both ITV and ITV4. This coverage, produced by Ascot Racecourse and HBA Media, will be used for the world feed, ensuring continuous coverage even during ITV's ad breaks.

Ascot has also commissioned a 24-minute documentary, "Queens Of The Turf," featuring Ascot-winning jockeys Hollie Doyle, Hayley Turner, Gay Kelleway, and Laura Pearson. Produced by Filmnova with an all-female crew and presented by ITV’s Francesca Cumani, this documentary highlights the evolution of female jockeys in the sport. It will be available to international broadcasters alongside the world feed.

Additionally, international broadcasters can air "The Golden Hour," a bespoke one-hour live show focusing on the Gold Cup Day (June 20). Presented by Tom Stanley and Michelle Yu, this show aims to provide an international perspective on the event.
