NBC Sports Revs Up Cross-Platform Motorsports Coverage
NBC Sports Group will present its most extensive and comprehensive motorsports coverage ever in 2013, with more than 200 programming hours spanning races, practices, qualifying, pre- and post-race studio shows, and behind-the-scenes programs. Coverage will air across NBC, NBC Sports Network, and NBC Sports Live Extra, the NBC Sports Group’s live streaming platform, via TV Everywhere. Additionally, two F1™ races will air on CNBC.
NBC Sports Network, which has been the exclusive cable home for the IZOD IndyCar Series since 2009, will televise more Indy races this season than ever before. The addition of two "doubleheaders" to the schedule will result in NBC Sports Network televising 13 races this season, plus 12 Indy Lights races.
In addition, F1™, which made its NBC Sports Group debut in early March, features a full schedule that includes all 19 races in 19 countries from March through November, including 13 on NBC Sports Network, four on NBC and two on CNBC.
Programming for both open-wheel circuits will include significant shoulder content that is consistent with their unique brands, and NBC Sports Group is committed to providing more motorsports coverage, in more ways, than ever before. Cross-platform coverage includes the recently launched MotorSportsTalk on NBCSports.com, and, later this year, NBC Sports Group will live stream both circuits on NBC Sports Live Extra via TV Everywhere.
