BT Sport inks production deal with North One
11 December 2013 – North One Television has agreed a five-year deal with BT Sport to produce its MotoGP coverage, it has been confirmed.
BT Sport acquired the exclusive live UK FIM MotoGP World Championship rights from Dorna Sports earlier this year and North One Television worked alongside them to create an editorial plan.
Details of the coverage and the on-screen team will now be unveiled in the new year but North One CEO Neil Duncanson described the approach as ‘pretty ground breaking’.
“We don’t want to give anything away just yet, but it would be fair to say that MotoGP fans will not have seen anything like this. They will be super-served by BT Sport on screen and online, it really will be something special,” he stated.
BT Sport head Simon Green added: “We are delighted to be working with North One on our MotoGP coverage which starts next March in Qatar.
"North One has a wealth of experience in motorsport production and we look forward to working with them to develop groundbreaking MotoGP coverage in the UK.”
MotoGP will launch on BT Sport in March 2014.
