Channel 4 Horse Tracker Apple App

The Channel 4 Horse Tracker app – which allows viewers to track the position and speed of the horses – will be available for today’s Crabbie’s Grand National.

The free app uses Monterosa’s LViS second screen technology and TurfTrax data to allow users to access live race information synchronised with their TV coverage of the race – including the position of horses, as well as the speed of their selection; distance to the next horse and to the finish.

Through the Channel 4 Horse Tracker users can choose to track one horse, a multiple selection, or track the live positions of all the horses in a race – helping the viewer to more clearly understand where their horse is positioned in the field. The app will cover all televised races from Aintree today, including The Crabbie’s Grand National, which is live on Channel 4 at 4.15pm.

“Innovation has always been at the heart of Channel 4’s sports coverage and this is a great opportunity to give our viewers a whole new perspective on the world’s most famous horse race,” said James Rutherford, Channel 4’s Multiplatform Commissioner for Sport.

“In the heat of the live action it can often be difficult for viewers to track the position of their horses. Using real time data from the course combined with the latest audio-watermarking technology has allowed us to give viewers the chance to exactly track their horses alongside the television coverage.”

The app is available to download now from the Apple App Store. A non-synchronised version of tracker is also available online at Channel4.com/horsetracker.
