Satellite Information Services Now Exclusive Provider of Racing Data

Data makes the world of online gambling go round. Satellite Information Services (SIS) is a company formed in 1986 which provides news gathering services, specialized broadcast solutions and provides content and production services to the betting industry; such as horse racing and greyhound racing, to retail betting shops in the U,K, Ireland and other international destinations.

SIS has become the sole supplier for a slew of UK and Irish racecourses to provide data from 20 courses, as well as UK greyhound racing, including horse racing from Dubai, Latin America, Singapore and Germany. SIS commented that it  will help to “open up significant new betting opportunities”.

Additionally, customers will be able to access the SIS’s streaming services via its SIS Stream platform.

The commercial director of SIS, Paul Witten, commented on the arrangement, “This is a significant step forward for SIS, enabling more direct interactions with end customers and opening the door for new and exciting services.

“In order to facilitate the initiative, our commercial and technical teams are geared up and ready to initiate the new commercial agreements and the required feed integrations.

“We are in discussions with other data providers to agree transitional arrangements to ensure that we minimise the impact of these changes on affected customers, and that all customers can safely and effectively migrate over to the new services.”

Customers of the data provider will have access to both pricing and enhanced data services, as well as in-running data for horse racing, Data for racing will no longer be available through other offerings, and now must agree to receive the data services exclusively from SIS.
