Motorvision TV, the German pay-TV channel for car and motorsports fans, has launched on the IPTV platform of Bouygues Telecom in France.
With 14.7 million customers including 2.8 million fixed-line broadband subscribers, Bouygues Telecom is one of the leading companies in the French telecommunications market.
Motorvision TV can be watched by customers signed up to the Bbox grand angle package on channel 68. The channel is, however, not available to customers subscribing to the Bbox Très Haut débit bouquet.
Through the new carriage deal, Motorvision TV expands its reach in France. The channel launched in 2013 in France on Orange’s IPTV platform followed by Free.fr in 2015.
Most of Motorvision TV’s programmes are produced by its own production company in Munich and dubbed into French. The line-up includes, for example, documentary series Car History and other programmes like DreamCars, Supercars and 4×4.
The motorsports coverage comprises highlights from racing series such as the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship, Ferrari Challenge Europe, FIA European Truck Racing Championship and NASCAR Whelen Euro Series.
The distribution agreement with Bouygues Telecom has been arranged by French channel agents Nicolas Gorse and Vincent Glatigny (G & Co.). Worldwide, Motorvision TV can be received by around 10 million subscribers across four continents.
