Eurosport agrees new World Superbike TV deal

The World Superbike Championship will continue to be shown on Eurosport for 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Eurosport will continue to televise the World Superbike Championship for the next three seasons after agreeing new terms with Infront Sports & Media.

The broadcaster has been a long-time partner of the premier Superbike series, providing live coverage of each World Superbike race, as well as most World Supersport and FIM Superstock 1000 Cup races.

From 2013, Eurosport will now offer exclusive live broadcasting on air, online and on mobile in the UK, Ireland, Germany and France.

This pan-European agreement includes all 59 territories covered by Eurosport. All rounds of the three championships will be shown live or delayed in high definition on either Eurosport or Eurosport 2 channels.

Digital rights will see all races, including the Superpole qualification, broadcast on internet and mobile on the Eurosport Player online streaming service.

"Eurosport has been a long-term partner of World Superbike since 1998,” said Eurosport director Julien Bergeaud. “We are delighted to extend this partnership for three additional years. With extensive coverage on TV, internet and mobile of the three FIM championships, plus exclusivities in key markets such as UK, Germany and France, Eurosport brings unrivalled broadcast to superbike fans in Europe and consolidates its motorsports offer."

The current deal expires at the end of the 2015 season.

Hehe great to know we'll enjoy Whitham and Burnicle's enthusiasm for 3 more year :) I could watch the races on Eurosport France but I always prefer watching them on Eurosport UK just because of those 2 guys. They're dynamic, knowledgeable and fun.
