Today, Amazon’s free ad-supported streaming service Freevee announced it’s adding a new channel for car enthusiasts in the United Kingdom.
Speedvision is a “high-octane” auto entertainment network offering a diverse selection of blue-chip vehicle video content such as the upcoming special Radford Reborn with master mechanic Ant Anstead and 2009 FIA Formula One World Champion Jenson Button.
“There’s no better way to deliver Speedvision to the U.K. audience than with the launch of Radford Reborn, a thrilling series that epitomizes the premier automotive entertainment found on this network,” said Robert Scanlon, President and CEO of Speedvision. “Speedvision’s launch in the U.K. on Amazon Freevee is further evidence of our remarkable growth that’s fueled by providing highly attractive content to advertisers and our enormous auto-passionate audience. The Speedvision FAST Channel instantly offers a go-to content source for the U.K. audience and we’re extremely pleased to give them the gold-standard automotive programming they want, where they want it.”
According to the press release:
“Speedvision and Radford Motors, the iconic makers of fine automobiles, have teamed up to chronicle the dramatic race to recreate a legendary four-wheeled Holy Grail. The five-part documentary series follows Radford Motors partners, Anstead and Button, as they set out to do the previously unthinkable and create the Radford Type 62-2, a reimagined version of the fabled Lotus Type 62 for today’s modern era.”
The first episode of Radford Reborn will premiere exclusively in the United Kingdom on Monday, May 15th, 2023 at 8:00 p.m. GMT. The remaining four segments will air Tuesday through Friday in the same time slot. Those who prefer to binge-watch can do so Saturday, May 20th at 1:00 p.m. GMT.
