The New York Racing Association has launched NYRA Now, a free application that streams live and on-demand NYRA video content, the organization announced Tuesday.
NYRA Now provides live racing content from customizable camera angles, as well as offering a growing library of on-demand content, encompassing race replays, historical pieces and in-depth analysis. This repository can also be utilized to access stakes replays, historical pieces, jockey and trainer profiles and expert analysis.
“The idea was to create an ‘Over The Top’ platform to distribute our content,” said David O’Rourke, NYRA Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer. “We started with NYRA.com and the NYRA HD app and now we’re investing in a more robust platform across multiple devices, including ones focused on the television experience. If you like our circuit and want to watch our races, there’s no better experience than this app.”
Live race calls are accessible in both English and Spanish at NYRA tracks, with expanded racing analysis in Spanish also available. Talking Horses, NYRA’s handicapping show, will be uploaded to the app shortly after the completion of the live show, and users can also view analysis on a race-by-race basis.
NYRA Now is currently available on Apple iOS operations systems, Android devices and Chromecast. Additional platforms will also be supported this spring, including Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire, Roku, Xbox and PS4.
