TAB TV is a pay TV channel, available on SKY Digital channel 035 and TelstraClear InHomeTV channel 35. TAB TV is the thoroughbred horse racing, harness horse racing and greyhound racing broadcasting component of the New Zealand Racing Board TAB. It is used to broadcast every race the TAB takes betting on.
TAB TV broadcasts from 0900 - 0100 Monday and Tuesday then 0900 – 0400 Wednesday to Sunday with up to 14 races per hour at peak times. TAB TV broadcasts all New Zealand race meetings with the addition of international racing from Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, North America, France, the UK and Ireland.
The sister channel to TAB TV, Trackside focuses mainly on New Zealand races with more in depth build up to races, including feature interviews and special interest racing programming. This is unlike TAB TV which takes in a much larger volume of racing during broadcast hours.

TAB TV covered Fill the Basin, the February 2011 Christchurch earthquake fundraiser cricket match. The game was broadcast live on both TAB TV and Canterbury Television, with delayed coverage of the game on Trackside later that evening.
