TNT Sports becomes new home of Formula E in the UK

TNT Sports will become the official broadcast home of Formula E live race coverage in the UK and Ireland.

Formula E arrives on TNT Sports next month with live coverage of the race in Mexico City on Saturday, 13 January to kick-off Season 10 of the pioneering all-electric motorsport.

Not only will exclusive television coverage be presented on TNT Sports, the most comprehensive digital ecosystem will see uninterrupted coverage of every race streamed live for viewers in the UK on discovery+* alongside extensive editorial coverage on TNTSports.co.uk to tell the stories of Formula E and its teams.

Viewers can look forward to live coverage of all 17 races in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship next year in what will be Formula E’s biggest-ever season.

TNT Sports’ football pundit and broadcaster Jermaine Jenas will front Formula E coverage as lead presenter alongside Nicki Shields and a host of experts who will bring Formula E’s unique racing to life for fans.

More viewers than ever tuned into live Formula E race coverage last season. They witnessed the most competitive and exciting season yet as every Formula E track record was smashed including the fastest top speed in a race, fastest average lap speed, more race leaders than ever before, and triple-digit overtakes in most races including a high of 403 passes in the US race in Portland, Oregon.

Jeff Dodds, CEO, Formula E, said: “This is incredible news for sports fans in the UK who already watch premium live sports on TNT Sports. From next month they will get to enjoy the new thrill of Formula E racing, the most competitive motorsport on TV. For existing Formula E fans, we are excited to present TNT Sports as the new home of Formula E in the UK. With experienced professional sportsperson and broadcaster Jermaine Jenas leading our stellar line-up of expert presenters to provide his original perspective for viewers, we cannot wait to get to work in Mexico City.”

Jermaine Jenas, Formula E television presenter, said: “Since retiring from football I never thought I would find a sport that I loved as much but Formula E is a sport like nothing else. I couldn’t be more excited to take on this incredible presenting role and travel the world with such amazing teams. To get in front of the camera and share that energy and action with viewers is a whole new challenge and adrenaline rush for me and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Formula E TV presentation line-up:

Jermaine Jenas will join popular host Nicki Shields, commentator Tom Brooks, ex-Formula E driver Karun Chandhok, and four-time IndyCar champion Dario Franchitti to anchor the coverage on TNT Sports and all English-language Formula E programming around the world.

Pitlane reporters Radzi Chinyanganya, presenter for Warner Bros. Discovery’s Olympic Games coverage, and Saunders Carmichael-Brown will return next season along with former Formula E team boss Allan McNish.

New to the expert line-up are respected Formula E veteran driver, André Lotterer; rally driver Catie Munnings; and tenacious racing driver, Billy Monger. Former F1 veteran David Coulthard and inaugural W Series champion Jamie Chadwick will make guest appearances through the season.
