Motorsports enthusiasts and petrolheads in the UK and Europe can now stream exclusive live and on-demand automotive content across multiple platforms
LOS ANGELES, April 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TEN: The Enthusiast Network announced today it is immediately expanding the distribution of Motor Trend OnDemand, the world's premier stand-alone automotive SVOD/OTT service, to motorsports and petrolhead enthusiasts in the UK and European markets. This means auto enthusiasts are now able to stream thousands of hours of the best automotive content, including motorsports, original programming, and events on multiple platforms, such as Apple TV, Xbox One, Roku, and Fire TV, in addition to all iOS and Android mobile phones, tablets, and the web.
Formally launched in the U.S. in May 2016, Motor Trend OnDemand features more than 2,000 hours of live and original content, allowing auto enthusiasts to watch races from 126 different motorsports series, as well as 17 original programming series, special events, and archives that include IndyCar. Due to a rapid increase in interest for Motor Trend OnDemand among international auto enthusiasts, MOTOR TREND successfully struck deals to expand its motorsports rights to the UK and across much of Europe and more, allowing this audience to now receive easy access to its content.
"The international success of some of our franchise programs such as Roadkill, HOT ROD Garage, Head 2 Head, and Ignition, is due in part to our large YouTube and social following in the European markets," says Scott Dickey, CEO of TEN: The Enthusiast Network. "When we launched Motor Trend OnDemand last year, the rights to our motorsports content were exclusive to the U.S. Still, we saw a surprising number of members from around the world subscribing to watch our original programming. Today, we are now delivering what our loyal auto enthusiasts are craving by also offering them access to top racing and motorsports programming from 126 series on nearly any devices, when they want it. Summed up, we're covering an unprecedented volume of digital motorsports choice, from international major series to national events in many European countries."
Through 2017, auto enthusiasts across Europe will now have access to:
- More than 2,000 hours of motorsports programs, live and on-demand, including news and live events such as the Pirelli World Challenge, British Touring Car Championship, FIM motorcycle racing, Blancpain GT Series, European Le Mans Series, British GT, the 24 Hour Series, Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and more.
- More than 2,000 episodes of original shows—such as Roadkill, Dirt Every Day, HOT ROD Garage, Head 2 Head, Ignition—and events like Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, The Motor Trend Awards, and more.
- Exclusive live and on-demand videos: MTOD will support live streaming and live programming, allowing enthusiasts to watch races as they happen and on the go, including ADAC Zurich 24-Hour Race, FIA Formula 3 European Championship, Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe, and more.
