sle of Man TT fans will be able to watch every second of qualifying and race action live in 2022 after chiefs today unveiled plans for a dedicated broadcast platform for the festival.
Boasting uninterrupted coverage of every qualifying session and every race, fans the world over can look forward to two weeks of TT bliss, with all the action, stories and talking points – both on and off track – streamed directly to their homes and devices.
“Launching in the spring of 2022, the TT’s very own digital channel will be the exclusive home of live race coverage, accessible via the live pass,” said TT development chief Paul Phillips.
“However, the channel won’t be limited to TT fortnight with the promoters offering year-round original content that includes an eight-part docuseries and a feature-length documentary film in the vein of fans’ favourite, Closer to the Edge.”
Some of the platform’s content will be free-to-air while other parts will be either subcription or pay-per-view with details being released later.
The docuseries will be in the vein of Netflix’s Drive to Survive, which follows Formula One around the world with Phillips saying the TT’s version would have much better stories to tell.
The TT’s normal terrestrial broadcasts won’t be affected.
