BTCC on TV
The Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship enjoys unrivalled and unprecedented television coverage in the UK thanks to its long-standing partnership with the ITV television network.
ITV will continue to screen the BTCC live and free-to-air until at least 2022 after a new contract was signed between Britain’s biggest motor sport series and the UK broadcasting giant – making it the largest TV contract in the BTCC’s history and also the longest sports broadcasting contract into which ITV4 has ever entered.
The new contract commences from 2017 and will see the network continue its current broadcast arrangements, which feature at least seven hours of live coverage from each race day. Highlights programmes will also continue to be aired on ITV4 and ITV, whilst qualifying will be shown via ITV’s dedicated BTCC website – www.itv.com/btcc.
All transmissions will be streamed ‘as live’ via itv.com with highlights programmes available to watch via the newly launched ITV Hub. The ITV Hub App will also screen live coverage and highlights for mobile and tablet devices.
The BTCC also enjoys extensive coverage overseas, including CBS Sports Network screening highlights in North America. A multitude of networks such as Speed, ESPN and FOX are among those that ensures that Britain’s biggest motor sport series is broadcast across six continents throughout each season. Viewers in these regions should check local listings for latest broadcast dates and times.
