Dedicated endurance sports OTT channel launched

A new television channel that claims to be the first-ever globally-available dedicated endurance sports channel has launched across all platforms and providers.

The ‘endurance sports TV’ channel allows participants and fans instant access to event footage, documentaries and news. Launch content includes a library of 120 videos on running, cycling, obstacle course racing, triathlon and adventure racing.

The channel has already secured the Obstacle Course Racing World Championships, along with Ironman triathlon events and the Patagonman XTRI documentary.

It will have downloadable apps on Apple, Android, Amazon Prime, Firestick, Roku and web.
