Be the director
Imagine if you were the director of the coverage for one of the world’s great race days. Well, here’s your chance with nine streams to pick and choose from, watching the Lexus Melbourne Cup your way. If you want to follow a particular horse, or want to explore Australian entertainment pre-race, it’s yours to choose.
Unique & free
This is a world-first innovation and as such, a whole new way of experiencing a global race day. There’s no catch for you. We don’t ask for registration, it’s free to install, we just want you to explore Immersive and see how you like it.
A world of Immersive features
Immersive allows you to watch the Flemington races your way, by navigating to the app on your favourite device. It’s live, it’s in real time, it’s designed to let you explore Flemington, the races themselves and the party going on in Melbourne, Australia.
Immersive will go live on Tuesday, November 2, on the morning (Australian Eastern Standard Time) of the 2021 Lexus Melbourne Cup. It will also be available for the Kennedy Oaks meeting on Thursday, November 4 and the Paramount+ Stakes Day on November 6.
Nine live camera angles to choose from, as well as race replays, live radio from Flemington, 360 degree cameras and more. You can control what you watch or listen to, and when.
Yes, as this is an entirely new concept, we wanted the world to enjoy it, explore it and hopefully love it, as a second screen highlight while watching the main race feed.
Once inside Immersive, you will be offered three regions to choose from: Racetrack, Mounting Yard and Entertainment. Within those three environments, you will have extra selections for camera angles, or features, including split-screen viewing. It’s designed to be easy to click and play, wherever you are.
Immersive is a web application for use on any modern computing device, add to the home screen for iOS or simply jump in on Android.
