Formula E’s live races will be available to watch on the TNT Sports network thanks to a new partnership spanning across the UK and Ireland.
TNT Sports will begin showing Season 10 of the all-electric motorsport on 13 January live from Mexico City. Every race will be streamed as it happens for UK viewers on Discovery+, together with more editorial coverage on TNTSports.co.uk that explores the behind-the-scenes of Formula E and its teams.
Trojan Paillot, SVP of Sports Rights Acquisitions and Syndication at Warner Bros Discovery Europe, said: “We are pleased to agree to a new supercharged partnership with Formula E that will deliver sports fans in the UK and Ireland with exclusive live coverage of every race throughout the season.
“Not only does this further expand our motorsport portfolio but integrates Formula E as part of the most varied premium sports offer in the UK alongside football, rugby, cricket, boxing and much more to further elevate the profile of the series and to help it to reach an even wider audience.”
TV coverage will include former Premier League star and current broadcaster Jermaine Jenas as the lead presenter, with additional commentary from Nicki Shields and a wide host of experts.
Jenas commented: “Since retiring from football I never thought I would find a sport that I loved as much but Formula E is a sport like nothing else. I couldn’t be more excited to take on this incredible presenting role and travel the world with such amazing teams.
“To get in front of the camera and share that energy and action with viewers is a whole new challenge and adrenaline rush for me and I’m really looking forward to it.”
The last season of Formula E was record-breaking, as fans witnessed the fastest top speed recorded in a race, the fastest average lap, as well as triple-digit overtakes. The competition will look to replicate this success in the new year as well, with TNT Sports there to capture it all.
Jeff Dodds, CEO of Formula E, concluded: “This is incredible news for sports fans in the UK who already watch premium live sports on TNT Sports. From next month they will get to enjoy the new thrill of Formula E racing, the most competitive motorsport on TV. For existing Formula E fans, we are excited to present TNT Sports as the new home of Formula E in the UK.
“With experienced professional sportsperson and broadcaster Jermaine Jenas leading our stellar line-up of expert presenters to provide his original perspective for viewers, we cannot wait to get to work in Mexico City.”
