For those who didn't get the memo, the 2019 Melbourne Cup will not be shown on Channel 7. (And yes, that means no Bruce McAvaney.)
Last year, Channel 7 lost the broadcasting rights to the 2019 Melbourne Cup. Instead, the four-day program at Flemington has been picked up by a rival network who will retain the rights for the next five years.
What channel is the 2019 Melbourne Cup on?
This year, Network Ten will exclusively broadcast the Melbourne Cup on free-to-air television. This also means you can't watch the race online via 7plus. Instead, you will need to use Ten's streaming app TenPlay.
Channel Ten's coverage will commence 3pm AEDT. You can check out our complete viewing guide here.
