TVG Network is an American digital cable network that specializes in horse racing. The company broadcasts from Los Angeles, California and is available in the United States on Dish Network and DirecTV as well as select cable companies.

TVG Network is an interactive horse racing network that combines live, televised coverage from over 100 of the World's premier racetracks and allows viewers to make wagers from home: online, by phone, mobile phone and, where available, using a set-top remote control.

In addition to live horse racing, TVG Network features professional race analysis, interviews, handicapping tips, feature stories on the superstars of horse racing--the horses--personalities and legends of racing, and programs such as "The Works," featuring daily training and workouts of horses leading up to the Breeders' Cup. TVG Network also airs "America's Horse", the American Quarter Horse Association's television program, Sunday mornings.

TVG began broadcasting in 1999, and has since become the largest interactive horse racing network in America.Fact|date=February 2007 In May 2006, TVG introduced new shows, including "Morning Line", "Fandicapping", ":58 Flat" and "Lady Luck," an all female panel focusing on the day's races, and Drive Time a new show covering exclusive racing from the Meadowlands. TVG also takes you inside the racetrack with All Access coverage on select weekends. TVG places microphones on select Jockeys, Owners, Trainers, and the Starting Crew to give viewers an inside look at racing. TVG personalities include Todd Schrupp, Gary Seibel, Rich Perloff, Jill Byrne, Bob Baedeker, Nancy Ury, Mike Joyce, Dave Weaver, Chris Kotulak, former trainers Frank Lyons, Simon Bray, Nick 'the Sarge' Hines and paddock correspondent Christina Olivares.

TVG also has created a website, www.tgvfree.net , for people NOT living in the 15 states that currently offer wagering services. It allows viewers the chance to make "fun" bets with a mythical $1,000 bankroll. The wagering interface is almost identical to www.tvg.com. People can get real-time odds & will-pays, wagering tutorials, free streaming video from selected tracks, & more. It's similar to the many ".net" poker websites that allow people to learn about the game in a fun practice before "jumping into the pool...the POOL!"(Dave Weaver's favorite quote).

TVG covers over 80 tracks, with exclusive coverage of several tracks, including American tracks such as NYRA Keeneland, Del Mar Racetrack, Hollywood Park Racetrack, Meadowlands, and Monmouth Park. The network also broadcasts races from various tracks in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Japan. TVG coverage includes events such as the Japan Cup, the Blue Grass Stakes and Royal Ascot.

In late February 2007, TVG ended its longtime affiliation with Churchill Downs Incorporated.
