Powerboat P1 SuperStock UK to Get Expanded Coverage after New TV Deal

By Community | April 26, 2012

Marine motorsport series Powerboat P1 SuperStock UK and P1 AquaX championships will be viewed by more people than ever before after they agreed a new deal with television production and distribution company Greenlight TV.

The Isle of Man and Manchester-based producers will bring Powerboat P1’s UK series onto screens in more than 30 countries around the world, including major population centres such as China, India and Russia, when the season starts next month.

Dedicated P1 SuperStock programmes will be shown in the UK on Sky Sports HD, with additional coverage through magazine shows on Channel 5, Sky Sports HD and ESPN UK to give a estimated total of more than 3,000 broadcast minutes.

Greenlight TV is planning to enhance the coverage through the use of more on-board cameras.  The popular webisodes will again be shown on www.p1superstock.co.uk which already carries almost 30 edits from the 2011 race season.

P1 AquaX coverage will be boosted by a new end-of-season review programme on a number of channels including Sky Sports HD. Each round will have its own webisode specially produced by Greenlight TV and shown online via www.p1aquax.com

“High quality television coverage is essential to the development of our two championships, and the enhanced production capability with more on-board cameras and the extended distribution will benefit everyone involved in the series” said P1 commercial director James Durbin.
