News Image
EBS has further expanded its contract with motorsport channel Motors TV.

EBS has worked with Motors TV for a number of years, supplying EPG data via its Pawa software solution and portfolio of EPG data services to the Sky and Virgin platforms. The latest expansion sees EBS further support Motors TV in its recent move to provide viewers with a free-to-air service on Arqiva's DTT capacity, via Freeview channel 71.

Launched in 2000, Motors TV offers the widest range of motorsport coverage in the world, with over 120 different series and championships shown on the channel, including FIA World Rally Championship, FIA World Endurance Championship, NASCAR Xfinity Series, V8 Supercars and British GT. EBS provides Motors TV with a clear, defined workflow taking all the scheduling information for the channel and restructuring it to meet the requirements of the platform, aggregating all data through a central system for consistency and ease of use.

"We're really excited to deliver the widest range of live motorsport to terrestrial TV viewers in the UK. The EPG plays a huge role in capturing and retaining our audience and it’s really important that it’s accurate at all times. When viewers switch to the channel they need to know immediately what's on. Working with EBS we're able to provide a high-quality EPG service," explained Frédéric Viger, Head of Programming & Acquisitions, Motors TV.
