Extreme E, the thrilling electric off-road series, will partner with broadcasting giant Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) in a new multi-year agreement that will offer millions of motorsport fans the best live and on-demand race coverage across Europe on Eurosport with streaming on Max and discovery+* .

World-class coverage of Extreme E on Eurosport will feature an exciting range of programming including live race action, highlights shows and on-demand access so viewers can watch wherever and whenever they choose, all delivered in local languages by the best motorsport experts.

The agreement will continue to see Extreme E screened in over 50 territories, which is the series’ most expansive broadcasting partnership. Coverage will also be available alongside other major motorsport series such as Formula E and the FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC) including the iconic 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The pioneering electric series features ten races in the most challenging and remote locations, all of which have been negatively impacted by climate change and human influences. Extreme E aims to raise awareness of these issues through world-class, sustainable motorsport action that inspires viewers to consider their own environments impact.

As we sit in Eurosport’s sustainable motorsport portfolio, we can also continue the effort in promoting green mobility, which is the future.”
