COSMOTE extends broadcast agreement

COSMOTE TV will continue to bring the FIA World Rallycross Championship to Greek fans until at least the end of 2025, after prolonging its broadcast partnership with Rallycross Promoter on the eve of World RX’s exciting electric switch.

COSMOTE TV will continue to bring the FIA World Rallycross Championship to Greek viewers until at least the end of 2025, after prolonging its partnership with WRC Promoter on the eve of World RX’s exciting electric switch.

The broadcaster’s existing agreement had been due to expire at the end of 2022, but a three-year extension has now been struck that will yield some 200 hours of live coverage this year across the COSMOTE SPORT channels.

This will encompass top-level World RX, FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) and FIA European Rally Championship (ERC) action as well as event highlights, interviews with the stars of the show, paddock news and behind-the-scenes features.

For the first time in its history, World RX will feature electric-powered cars in 2022, boasting faster acceleration and greater all-round performance than ever before courtesy of 500kW delivered to the twin motors – equivalent to 680bhp – and 880Nm of instant torque.

The new deal with leading Greek pay-TV provider COSMOTE follows a similar one announced late last year with C More to screen all three series in Sweden and Finland.

Philipp Maenner, Media Rights Director at WRC Promoter, welcomed the multi-year renewal as a ‘treble treat’ for Greek motorsport enthusiasts.

“Our portfolio of top-class motorsport really resonates with fans across the globe,” he commented. “Because of that, broadcasters are keen to not only increase their programme hours, but to also show their confidence in the future by signing long-term contracts.”
