RKB-F1 Motorsport announces new Global television partnerships on Free-to-Air channels
For 2017, the Hyundai British Sidecar Championship will be screened across three continents in a new agreement signed early in the New Year. The live coverage from Eurosport will be enhanced with mid- afternoon race slots on the British Superbike weekend schedule, thereby attracting the peak viewing audience of bike race enthusiasts. The dedicated highlights programme with the added spice of in-depth on-board action will now be available to a much wider International audience and free-to-air in the UK for the first time.
The free-to-air Frontrunner Channel, is already alive and well with a variety of great motorsport and extreme sport action, as well as its original content of International Poker competitions. This channel, found across three platforms, will be the new home of The British Sidecar Championship in the UK.
The exisiting agreement with MAV TV in North America and Canada has been extended and gives access to 32 million cable subscribers in those territories, and and exciting new venture sees the series back on Australian screens within the two-hour "Speedweek" show on SBS1 and Fox Sport.
This new exposure is great news for teams and the series, and means that virtually everyone with a television set in the UK will be able to watch the action as it unfolds in 2017 and beyond.
