Motorsport and automotive video provider Motorsport.tv, which in a previous incarnation as Motors TV provided a free-to-air channel on UK DTT platform Freeview, has launched a new service to fuel the passion of fans and open up access to a world of content with its freemium OTT service.

As Motorsport Network’s hub for video content, the freemium service provides fan access to videos from 125 different motorsport series, including over 1,000 live stream events and races each season and more than 3,000 hours of quality video-on-demand without charge. In addition, users who take advantage of free registration can also create their own customised channel and set alerts for their preferred live events.

According to Motorsport Network, the free service is another demonstration of its mission to put the fan at the heart of the action. For fans seeking additional premium content, the pricing of Motorsport.tv subscription plans remain unchanged at $3.99 per month or $39.99 annually, providing access to premium content including material from WEC, World Superbikes, the Le Mans archive, TCR Europe, the Duke archive, ELMS and Super Formula, all provided with ad-free navigation.

“As an enterprise solution for rights-holders and promoters, the integrated digital ecosystem across Motorsport Network helps to refer the largest motorsport and automotive audiences to Motorsport.tv,” commented Olivier Dufour, SVP of Video Distribution for Motorsport.tv. “Over 31 million customers come to us each month from our chat forums, news and review websites and our ecommerce platforms. This means we can offer rights-holders an unmatched global audience for their video and live streaming content at Motorsport.tv.”

Adding to its extensive catalogue of championships, Motorsport.tv recently confirmed a new agreement to carry the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship as part of its subscription service across Europe, providing over 125 hours of live streaming of this season’s 13 race championship, together with video on demand highlights, season preview and review films and a package of classic WSBK races.

Alongside World Superbikes, FIA Karting has confirmed that it was the latest rights-holder to join the platform with its content available as part of the freemium service. As more rights-holders join the platform, the content proposition for fans increases, drawing bigger audiences for the benefit of all.

“We are delighted to announce this new content agreement with Motorsport.tv – being on the world’s leading OTT platform across motorsport and automotive will help us to spread the word about the FIA’s karting championships and grow our audiences,” said James Geidel, FIA Karting Promoter. “As we are the breeding ground of future world champions, we have a spectacular racing proposition to showcase to Motorsport.tv’s viewers this season.”

“This important evolution of Motorsport.tv is another strong demonstration of our unique convening power in the motorsport industry – bringing many series together for the benefit of the fans and the rights-holders,” said Motorsport Network’s President, James Allen. “We want to super-serve both.”
