Cheltenham on TV today: What channel is the Cheltenham Festival 2024 on? Coverage and schedule

If you’re not one of the lucky ones going to this year’s Cheltenham Festival then don’t worry! You can take in all the action from the comfort of your own home.

While there’s nothing quite like watching in person, Paddy’s pals over at ITV Racing will make it feel like you’re there with them. Four days of the best in class coverage all free-to-air to make sure you don’t miss a single second. Hooray!

You’ll have the advantage of hearing from several of ITV Racing’s pundits ahead of each contest and our cracking columnists Ruby Walsh, Mick Fitzgerald and Matt Chapman will be appearing to offer their expertise.

The familiar face of Ed Chamberlin will be anchoring all four days of coverage across ITV.

Five races a day will be shown live on ITV with an incredible 20 hours of coverage broadcast across the whole festival. What about the other races? Well, that’s where we come in.

Paddy’s put his hand in his pocket so you can quickly livestream all 28 races on the Cheltenham Festival 2023 schedule for FREE on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app.
