Extreme E signs TV deal with RTM Malaysia

Extreme E has signed a multi-year TV deal with RTM Malaysia, the series has confirmed.

The series has got the green light to a number of TV deals in the last few months, and has now aded RTM Malaysia to the growing list.

The deal with RTM Malaysia is a multi-year contract covering the first three seasons of the championship, with every race to receive coverage, although at this stage, it has not been confirmed whether this will be live coverage or not.

Speaking about the announcement, Extreme E’s Chief Marketing officer, Ali Russell, said: “We are thrilled to announce a new broadcast partnership between RTM Malaysia and Extreme E.

“This deal harnesses audiences in a country that has a proven motor racing fanbase, and the relationship between ourselves and RTM, with a commitment until 2023, is the perfect way to reach a hungry viewership with our top-tier sporting product.”

Extreme E has already confirmed that FOX Sports will provide coverage for United States, Canada and the Caribbean, while FOX Sports Asia will bring the series to viewers in Southeast Asia, and all of these deals will run over a three year period.

The series also announced last week that BTRC will be providing coverage of the inaugural championship in Belarus, with the agreement on a single season deal only.
