Royal Ascot may have the pomp and pageantry but let’s not forget that the horses are always the stars of the show.
Whether you’re an equine enthusiast or sovereign supporter then you’ve come to the right place to find out how to watch all the drama and action from Berkshire over the next five days.
Royal Ascot TV Channel
ITV Racing – sponsored by Paddy Power – is the place to be if you’re planning to watch Royal Ascot on your telly box. The coverage will be split across ITV and ITV4 because of the Euros.
The Opening Show (ITV4) presented by Oli Bell tees up the day from 9am to 10am on Tuesday to Friday. It’s a slightly later start time of 9.30am on Saturday.
Ed Chamberlin and the gang go live from Ascot Racecourse on every day of the meeting with coverage of all the races although ITV’s Euro 2020 coverage means the racing will be split over two channels.
Tuesday June 15 – 13:30-16:00 (ITV) & 15:55-18:30 (ITV4)
Wednesday June 16 – 13:30-18:00 (ITV) & 17:50-18:35 (ITV4)
Thursday June 17 – 13:30-18:35 (ITV4) & 16:10-16:30 (ITV)
Friday June 18 – 13:30–18:00 (ITV) & 17:50-18:35 (ITV4)
Saturday June 19 – 13:25–16:00 (ITV) & 15:55-18:35 (ITV4)
Paddy Power has been sponsoring all of ITV Racing’s excellent live coverage since January 1. That’s every televised meet throughout 2021 as well as on-demand and catch up services, licensing rights, the ITV Racing app and the ITV7 competition as well.
