Thema, the company that distributes the channel, says the audience is shifting towards digital channels, and consuming more video content.
“Our customers are changing the way they consume content and as a global media business and the number one motorsport destination, our role is to deliver an unparalleled customer experience,” the company said in a statement.
“The future of Motorsport Network is exciting as we continue to use our unique convening power to provide unrivalled access, analysis and insight to all motorsport fans across the world. We are looking forward to the road ahead.”
Last month the broadcaster lost carriage on Canal+ in France.
Launched in September 2001 under the brand Motors TV “Télévision Grande Vitesse”, the high octane channel will continue to be broadcast by other French operators.
