Telstra plans to offer its live coverage of Melbourne Cup carnival to all broadband users, not just BigPond subscribers.

BigPond provided the first-ever live online coverage of the Melbourne Cup last year as part of its ‘video-on-demand’ trial of metropolitan Sydney and Melbourne racing.

This year Telstra has decided to broadcast the action from both Sydney and Victorian race meetings, including live streaming of The Victoria Derby, Melbourne Cup, Crown Oaks and Emirates Stakes to all broadband users.

Hosted on BigPond Sport, which is normally only available to BigPond Broadband subscribers, the extensive coverage will be include all races from this Saturday October 29 to next Saturday, November 5.In total that is more than 100 individual races available both live and ‘on demand’ after the race depending on race day schedules.

This will actually provide greater coverage than Free To Air television.

In addition to the races, Telstra will provide viewers with access to BigPond’s exclusive racing content including archives so you can see how your Melbourne Cup pick has run in lead up to the Cup and speciality racing shows such as ‘Early Mail’ and the ‘Black Bookers’.

‘BigPond even offers an “Online Sweep'” which will help make running your office or party sweep easier. It does not provide wagering facilities online though.
