Viasat Motor is the only dedicated motor sports channel in Sweden and Norway and features the most extensive Formula One coverage imaginable, including live coverage of each race and the qualifying sessions. The channel also has the rights to the MotoGP motorcycle grand prix championship and the Swedish Touring Car Championships, as well as carrying the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the Indy Racing League from the US.
Viasat Motor was launched in October 2008 in Sweden and Norway when the previous pan-Nordic/pan-Baltic Viasat Sport 2 and Viasat Sport 3 channels were replaced to fulfil the growing demand for localised premium sports content.
Viasat Motor is broadcast between 16:00 and 02:00 on weekdays and between 12:00 and 02:00 on weekends.
The first Viasat Sport channel was launched in the Nordic region in March 1999.
Viasat Motor is available through Viasat’s digital satellite TV platform in Sweden and Norway and is also distributed via third party cable TV and IPTV networks.
