European TV to air drone racing
Sky TV has invested €910,000 in the US-based Drone Racing League, with the first race being broadcasted on Sunday, October 23rd. The first live race from London is expected to take place next year.
In the meantime, Eurosport has announced that it will start broadcasting its own racing in France from November 8th, through a partnership with DR1 Racing, which is a leader in Asia and Europe.
While drone racing is beginning to air on European TV, it is interesting to note that competitions are not broadcasted live, but with a few minutes delay to allow dynamic editing. Eurosport also announced that it will provide video content and interviews with drone pilots from the world circuit on its website.
