CHENNAI: There is palpable excitement and expectations of high octane action as the 46th South India Rally, the first round of the Fmsci Indian National Rally Championship 2023, promoted by Blueband Sports, gets underway here on Friday with a field of 63 entries.
The International Motorcycling Federation (FIM) has detailed plans for a new OTT platform, which is in line with the FIM’s new strategy to produce only live content to be broadcast on FIM TV.
FIM OTT platform is all set for launch later this month with an initial live broadcast on FIM-MOTO.TV from the finals of the Ice Speedway Gladiators at Inzell in Germany on 18-19 March.
First Disney+ Hotstar lost the Indian Premier League streaming rights. Then it let go rights to Formula 1 as the "price was not right". Now the latest setback for the Disney-owned on-demand video streaming giant is that it will lose HBO content at the end of the month.
Formula 1 has agreed a 15-year strategic partnership with Premier League football club Tottenham Hotspur that will see the delivery of the world’s first-in stadium electric karting facility and London’s longest indoor track below the state-of-the-art Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
LONDON: IMG has secured in-ship and inflight rights to broadcast the next three seasons of the FIA Formula One World Championship on Sport 24 and Sport 24 Extra.
In a deal through to 2025, the IMG-owned and operated channels will broadcast over 150 hours of live coverage plus highlights from all race weekends.
The organisers of Extreme E have unveiled a new racing format for its upcoming third season.
Each X Prix will now be a doubleheader and play host to back-to-back rounds across the weekend.
Alejandro Agag, founder and CEO at Extreme E, said: “Since launching Extreme E, we have worked hard to improve the level of racing out on course to ensure it is thrilling to watch with plenty of action.
It can be said with certainty now. Formula 1 racing, which has been ensconced on the Star Sports network pretty much since cable TV came to India in 1991, will be going it alone in this market for the foreseeable future.
Which means that Indian F1 fans will not have access anymore to the pinnacle of motorsport racing on linear TV. Or any domestic OTT platform.
