Royal Ascot is the pinnacle of Flat horse racing in Britain and is watched by millions worldwide. Whether it be fashion or racing that you are interested in, ITV and Sky Sports Racing’s coverage of the spectacular five-day meeting is second to none and shouldn’t be missed.
ITV’s peak viewing audience throughout Royal Ascot last year was on Thursday, when Frankie Dettori’s riding prowess earned them 1.4million viewers. While the average audience on the terrestrial channel was 859,000.
Royal Ascot 2021 is coming around fast and a lot of effort is already going in the logistical and broadcasting side. With the meeting set to be run behind closed doors for the first time due to the coronavirus, ITV and Sky Sports Racing will be expecting record viewing numbers this time around.
There are many ways to watch the action that is spread out over the five days of the 2021 Royal Ascot Meeting. Of course, horse racing fans will be the main bulk of the audience, but with fashion and the Royal Procession playing a huge part of the meeting then these subjects also widen the Royal Ascot appeal across the globe.
