FEI Launch Online Equestrian Video Network - FEITV.org


FEITV.org was launched on the 19th of March, offering users videos and live coverage from National and International equestrian events.

Coverage from major FEI events will include:
  •     Rolex FEI World Cup TM Jumping
  •     HSBC FEI World Cup TM Eventing
  •     FEI World Cup TM Dressage and Driving
  •     Meydan FEI Nations Cup TM
Users can choose to watch footage from the video archive or see live footage from around the globe. The first live coverage is today (22nd March 09) this season's final qualifies of the Rolex FEI World Cup TM Jumping in the Netherlands.

The Cost
According to FEI.TV, the online footage can be accessed through a combination of free-to-air and subscription. I have had a good look around the site and can't find any information regarding the 'free-to-air' content. If you select our chosen footage you get taken to the subscription page.
The subscription fees for accessing the footage are in US Dollars or Euros, at current exchange rates, GBP subscription prices are:

Annual Pass:
£55.46

One Week Pass:
£12.47

Day Pass:
£6.93

This does seem like a good way of watching International equestrian events in the comfort of your own home, but is it worth the price tag? Join EquiPortal Discussion
