BTC+ Audio to be introduced

The BTC Audio channel incorporating commentaries from the SIS FACTS and TRP channels is now operational in over 800 betting shops. Presently this is a simple centrally managed switching of channels from one service to the other as required. Due to delays in obtaining the necessary studio equipment the switching service will continue until the end of April 2017. We then intend to begin a fully managed service including presenters who will add to the content available from SIS and TRP.

The New BTC+ Audio Service

Following on from the successful introduction of the BTC Audio Channel we will shortly be introducing an additional service which will incorporate audio from the SIS+ channel. This service will be called BTC+ Audio.

BTC+ Audio will include SIS+ commentaries rather than the SIS FACTS commentaries with the TRP commentaries . Thus shops which presently have the SIS+ channel will be able to have the choice of including commentaries for SIS+ events included in the BTC managed audio service. Please note, only shops that currently have SIS+ can subscribe to the BTC+ Audio service.

There will be no additional charge for this service to those shops currently subscribing to the BTC Audio service. However, there will be some changes required to the wiring within shops which will need to be made by the bookmaker in order to receive the BTC+ Audio.

A start date for the BTC+ Audio service is currently unavailable. Standard BTC Audio will be provided in the meantime.

Bookmakers who are interested in the BTC+ Audio service are asked to contact BTC to enable arrangements to be made to supply shops with this service.
