As a result, it will show all the action from every race weekend exclusively live throughout the 2020, 2021 and 2022 seasons. This is in addition to the current 2019 season which started in Australia last weekend.
Together with this renewed partnership, Eleven will sub-license highlights to Polsat and abridged live race programmes to TVP commencing from the 2019 season, which will provide extensive FTA coverage for the sport throughout the term.
The agreement also includes the broadcasting rights to FIA Formula 2 and FIA Formula 3 Championship and the Porsche Supercup Series, which commences in 2019 and concludes in 2022, and will be available on Polsat’s Sports Channels.
Commenting on the development, Michaella Snoeck, senior manager, media rights at Formula 1, said: “We are delighted to have extended our long-standing partnership with Eleven Sports for a further three seasons. Eleven Sports will broadcast a comprehensive offering made up of their high-quality on-site production and international feed coverage across their channels, which will be further enhanced by their sub-licensing partnership with both Polsat and Telewizja Polska SA, providing expanded FTA coverage to further support the growth of Formula 1 in Poland.”
Krzysztof Swiergiel, CEO of Eleven Sports in Poland, added: “With a big following of loyal fans who love the thrilling spectacle of Formula 1, the series has become a very important part of our premium offer in Poland. It has been a top priority to secure this extension and we are delighted that we will continue to cover every single lap with comprehensive, in depth coverage from every race weekend.”
