It an almost clean sweep of UK broadcasters, new racing series Extreme E has agreed a three-year deal with ITV.
As part of the deal, the commercial broadcaster will air live races, highlights shows and the championship’s 20-part magazine programme – Electric Odyssey. In addition, fans will be able to watch live and catch up on demand on Extreme E through the ITV Hub.
ITV will become the exclusive UK terrestrial broadcaster for Extreme E in 2022 and 2023.
The new motorsport series has previously confirmed deals with the BBC, Sky and BT Sport.
Niall Sloane, ITV director of Sport, said: “Bringing ITV viewers the launch of an innovative motorsport that promises first class live action underpinned by an insight into the possibilities of sustainable technology is an exciting prospect. We’re looking forward to the opening event next month and beyond as the exclusive live UK broadcaster of Extreme E in the coming years.”
