In addition to Virtual Sports, William Hill is also broadcasting US Horse Racing and Racing Post Greyhound TV on the same feed, as well as audio coverage of UK and Irish horseracing, and the Bookmakers Afternoon Greyhound Races.

William Hill is supporting the omnichannel delivery of its Betting Shop TV by ensuring players can bet on any platform via the William Hill sportsbook and have their win settled almost instantly.

Mike Jones, Omnichannel Director, William Hill, comments: “We are firmly committed to creating an enjoyable and memorable experience our customers love and trust. However, wherever and whenever they choose to bet.

“The development of Betting Shops TV clearly takes us a step further in providing that experience and we are delighted to be working with Inspired on this and a number of other omnichannel opportunities.”
