These things are very fluid. Could be all manner of reasons for the delay. At least the signs are still positive so far!

Starz Play has still not appeared yet. It's supposed to arrive today.

Perhaps someone with much greater insider knowledge can give us a update on that.

It wouldn't go there as it's not an app. It's content being delivered using VM's On Demand platform.

So is it bundled with a package then? And which levels?

I just checked, it must be above Mix as it says Upgrade To Watch here.

Correct. It is a separate subscription to all TV packs.

But although I am an avid horse racing follower, it really doesn't have as much mainstream appeal as some racing fans seem to think it has, so Sky have to factor that in, if they are thinking about making it a 'premium' channel

Trev
Coming back to your original post Trev here is the list of British Racecourses and there are quite a few independent racecourses on that list and l would say most of these in time in regard to their TV media rights will sign up with Sky.
