In a new multi-year partnership, CBS Sports have purchased the broadcasting rights to air the all-electric Formula E motor racing championships until the 2022/23 season.
All 14 of the ABB Formula E races set to take part during the 2020/21 season will be shown live across the CBS Sports Network, allowing for paying customers to watch in a 90-minute programme each race week. Viewers will be treated to over 100 hours of race content to watch throughout the partnership.
The deal will also see a minimum of two races shown on the CBS Television Network, including the New York City E-Prix.
CBS Sports have taken over the broadcasting rights from FOX, who have previously shown the race series for viewers since the beginning of the 2014/15 season.
Chief Media Officer of Formula E, Aarti Dabas said: “CBS is a leading media network in the USA with an impressive multi-platform offering and a growing portfolio of premium international sports content. We are delighted to partner with them in an important market for the Formula E ecosystem”
The partnership is set to start from the opening race of the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championships held in Santiago, Chile, on January 16 2021.
