With the coronavirus pandemic canceling competitions around the globe, several broadcasters have seen fit to share videos of past competitions for free.
FEI.TV, the Fédération Equestre Internationale’s online television platform, will be providing coverage of past events and special equestrian features free of charge to everyone while live sport is on hold until the end of June. Existing subscribers will be automatically refunded for the months of April, May and June. Users need to register, and all content on the platform will be available.
“Premium content like this usually sits behind a paywall and is normally available only to subscribers, but while there is no ‘live’ sport, we want to give equestrian fans the chance to binge-watch for free during this terrible pandemic,” said FEI Commercial Director Ralph Straus.
The Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event may not be happening this year, but USEF Network is hosting a virtual event featuring over 20 years of content from the event including special features, television programs, ride reviews and athlete reflections. USEF members may watch historic Kentucky coverage starting next Thursday, April 23, on USEF Network. Not a member? Use the promo code LRK3DE20 to sign up for a free fan membership.
