Formula E expands TV coverage & streaming in the USA
Formula E could be watched live by significantly more people from the United States in the coming season. The existing partnership of the racing series with the TV channel CBS Sports will be expanded. In addition, the racing series signed a contract with the streaming platform Roku, as Formula E announced shortly after the Portland E-Prix.
Five races will be broadcast live on CBS Television Network starting in January 2024, and U.S. customers of Paramount+ will also be able to watch the races live. Both channels are already featured and integrated prominently on the Roku platform.
In addition, the remaining eleven races of the season can be watched on The Roku Channel, a leader in free ad-supported streaming. It is the first time ever that Roku, the leading streaming service in the U.S. by hours streamed, has acquired live sports rights. Also, Roku now holds the rights to race previews, highlight videos, and the docu-follow series "Unplugged".
