Broadcast footprint expanded for Formula E finale in Berlin
The climax to the Formula E season will be shown by more than 60 broadcasters after new deals were signed off ahead of the concluding events in Berlin.
SuperSport, the leading pay-television operator in sub-Saharan Africa, and TV One Indonesia have signed up for the six-race title decider taking place at the closed Templehof Airport over the next week.
The first double-header is taking place today and tomorrow.
The new agreements take the number of territories in which Formula E is being shown to more than 150.
The SuperSport deal comes after the broadcaster extended its rights deal for Formula 1 until 2022.
The live broadcasters for the Berlin showdown include Fox in USA, Eurosport across Europe, C8 and Canal Plus in France and Mediaset in Italy, while highlights are available after each race on KBS in South Korea.
There is also live race coverage on Formula E’s digital channels in selected countries, with the qualifying sessions from Berlin available in all markets except Asia and USA.
Six races are being held over nine days behind closed doors in the German capital to complete the 2019-20 Formula E season that has been heavily disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.
The series managed five races (two in Diriyah in Saudi Arabia and one each in Santiago, Mexico City and Marrakech) this season before the outbreak of Covid-19 forced the suspension of the campaign.
