E8 television, a project backed by the European TV broadcaster SpiritON Media S.E., has launched on Astra Platform Service’s digital package, according to Rapid TV News.

With test transmissions running for a little under a year, the channel airs horse races from Germany, the United Kingdom, Sweden, South Africa, the United States and Dubai.

A Web site that accompanies the channel also went live and features live-stream of all events featured on the television channel. The news service said viewers are invited to place bets on horses via the Internet.
