Quest to start live streaming for World Rallycross Championship

Commencing with the live broadcast, viewers will be able to watch Quest on Internet-connected devices such as tablets and mobile phones via

The live online streaming service will soon be available via new Quest apps launching soon. A live stream of the channel is already available to users of the TVPlayer website and mobile apps. Quest already makes the channel’s most popular shows available to watch online through its on demand and catch up service.

Simon Downing, Head of Quest said.
“Streaming Quest live online to complement our linear, catch up and on demand services is a milestone in the continued growth of the channel which will pave the way to reach even bigger audiences. The start of what promises to be a thrilling Rallycross season is the perfect occasion to go live online, bringing all the action direct to your devices.”

Quest secured the free-to-air TV and digital broadcast rights for the FIA World Rallycross Championships earlier this year after the popularity of televising the highlights and the final live in 2015.

Quest is available on Freeview and YouView (BT, Plusnet, TalkTalk TV) channel 37, Sky channel 144 and Virgin channel 172.
