Formula E extends broadcast partnerships in Italy and France
January 4, 2024
The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship has announced extended broadcast partnerships with Mediaset in Italy and L’Equipe in France.
The multi-year extension of the championship’s media partnership with Mediaset will see more races broadcast free-to-air (FTA) in Italy this coming season than ever before.
At least six races in Season 10 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will air live on Italia Uno, with the remaining races in the 17-race season broadcasting on Canal20. All races will also be available on Mediaset’s online platform, sportmediaset.it.
The expanded media partnership increases Formula E programming on FTA channels from four lives races in the previous agreement, which began in Season 7, also including the debut double-header in on the Adriatic coast in Misano on 13 & 14 April – marking the start of Formula E’s European rounds.
A minimum of 11 races and nine qualifying sessions will air live on L’Équipe’s main linear channel, L’Équipe, with the remainder airing near live. All races and qualifying sessions will be live on L’Équipe live (available on the TV section of L’Équipe’s website and application).
L’Équipe will also increase the number of races presented as “super events” next season from four to seven races, which will include extended coverage and presentation on the same scale as the likes of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
