TVE picks up Formula E rights in Spain

Spanish public-service broadcaster TVE has acquired rights for the Formula E Championship electric car-racing series.

The deal began ahead of the Buenos Aires ePrix on Saturday and will run for the remainder of the 2015-16 campaign.

The rights will be exploited on Teledeporte, TVE’s free-to-air sports channel.

Formula E, a series governed by the International Motorsport Association (FIA), said further rights deals would be announced in the coming weeks.
