MN’S owner buys Motors TV channel
MN’S owner Motorsport Network has closed a deal to acquire the Motors TV channel.
Motors TV reaches more than 30 million homes and has 700 live events. It will form the backbone of motorsport.tv, a broadcast network covering motorsport and performance motoring.
The revised channel will graduate to full HD in March, with content also available for streaming and via systems such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire and Roku.
“The investment will enable us to create the very first dedicated broadcast ‘home’ in our expert areas of performance motoring and motorsport,” said Motorsport Network chairman Zak Brown.
The motorsport.tv platform will also feature a video on demand service.
“We have a simple three-point mission to deliver new content in better quality available everywhere at any time,” said Motors TV founder Jean-luc Roy.
