Tulsa, Okla. -- United Video Satellite Group Inc. has named
Mark Wilson, a veteran of the horse-racing industry, as president of its new
interactive-wagering unit.

In July, UVSG won control of ODS Technologies L.P. in an
arbitration proceeding over which company controlled the technology that will fuel the
in-home horse-race-betting application. UVSG paid $30 million for ODS.

Wilson, who spent the past seven years as president of
California-based R.D. Hubbard Enterprises, hopes to unveil a business plan for the basic
service to cable operators at the Western Show in December.

UVSG hopes to launch a racing channel on analog or digital
tiers by next spring.
