Message: Hey guys not sure if this topic has been posted before as I only signed up with 3 mobile yesterday...but as I was on planet3 homepage I noticed sky racing, after doing a little research I found out for $7 a month I can get all sky races streamed live to my mobile. So I signed up at 8am this morn and Ive gotta say its GREAT!!! mini sky on my mobile phone..all the races and odds ect and even tips. I highly reccomend it to anyone who travels. The only downside is you may need to buy and extra battery the live streaming chews through them :) p.s I dont work for 3mobile..hehehe
3mobiles bet of the day is Nowra r7 Ras Tafari I've had a little crack at it for fun lets see how they go.
Message: I also have the service, and I reckon it's excellent for what it is. The Sky video can be a bit shaky at times, but it's good enough to see what's happening and I think the audio was very clear, which helps a lot.
I was fishing last weekend and a mate called with some late mail from the Gold Coast. This is nothing new, but then being able to watch the thing on my phone while wetting a line off the rocks was amazing!
I reckon the fact that you can place a bet makes this service heaps better than the mobile cricket TV service 3 are also offering.
True, a combined TVN / Sky service would be very good, but that won't happen until they sort out TV rights first.
It's good to see these type of services finally reaching Australia. I believe that this service is just the tip of the iceberg and things will be really exciting when we can all place a bet without talking to an operator, like you can do over in the UK.
Hopefully seeing the sort of value that things like this 3 service can add will be an added incentive for Tabcorp/TVN to get their sh*t together.
