New streaming service to broadcast SuperEnduro live and EnduroGP on demand in 2019 seasons.
ABC Communication, the official promoter of the SuperEnduro and EnduroGP series, has signed a three year deal with Sportradar to create an official streaming service for the SuperEnduro and EnduroGP series from season 2019 and beyond.
Enduro-TV.com will begin broadcasting this weekend at the opening round of the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship in Poland.
The platform will provide live streams for all five 2019 SuperEnduro World Championship events, with all of the races subsequently being provided as Video on Demand (VOD).
The new deal will also see EnduroGP events in 2019 available as VOD – though at present it is not clear if any events (or part of) will be streamed live – previously the Friday night Super Tests have been live streamed on EnduroGP social media.
Sportradar also plans to migrate part of the back catalogue to the new OTT platform, including all the live, magazine and free content from the 2018 EnduroGP and SuperEnduro season and each magazine show from the 2017 EnduroGP and SuperEnduro season.
Bastien Blanchard CEO of ABC Communication said, “Last season, we decided to create our own OTT Channel named EnduroTV. It was an interesting and exciting first year but at the end, we thought we had to make a step forward and improve the fan experience. That’s why the choice of Sportradar was natural for us.
“In 2018 EnduroTV will get its own platform and it will be easy for every fan to watch EnduroGP and SuperEnduro from their different devices. We are really happy to sign a three year deal with Sportradar and we hope this collaboration will bring our Series to another level.”
