When asked what sporting events This is Live TV will show, Joby said "Using my contacts in the cycling world I was able to secure an initial series of races at the Olympic Velodrome in London to launch the channel from. These are scheduled to start on 24th January 2015 and will become the launch pad for the sports arm of the channel which will show a constant output of live sport." He added "We are currently in discussions with the Polo Association and the British Mountaineering Council to broadcast Polo and Climbing competitions."
As well as showing live sport and archiving these events so they can be watch on demand through http://www.thisislivetv.com, they also have other plans for their channel. Joby explained " The second string to our bow is broadcasting live theatre, which has been trialled with great success. We have partnered with a number of renowned theatre producers to broadcast upcoming events from the UK and West End. We are really keen to develop our offering based on what the viewers wants, be it a concert, product launch or debate."
