Quest, the Discovery-owned free-to-air channel, today announced it will extend its English Football League highlights show, EFL on Quest, for the remainder of the 2018-19 season.
Starting Saturday 30th March at its usual 9pm timeslot, the show will move to a two-hour show (from 90 mins), allowing fans to enjoy more action and analysis dedicated to every league – from the Championship to Leagues One and Two - during full game weeks as the season reaches an unforgettable climax.
The first episode of the extended EFL on Quest show will see host Colin Murray joined by former Derby County and Blackburn Rovers star Stephen Warnock to analyse the action featuring potentially season-defining fixtures such as Middlesbrough versus Norwich City, Luton Town versus Bristol Rovers and Exeter City versus Mansfield Town.
Colin Murray, Host of EFL on Quest, said: “With the season reaching boiling point across The Championship and in Leagues One and Two, I’m thrilled that EFL on Quest is being extended for the rest of the season. Given the incredible stories that unfold each and every week across the EFL, it’s great that we’ll be able to bring fans more action and more analysis.”
Shaun Harvey, EFL Chief Executive, said: “Quest’s move to extend the EFL’s Highlights show for the final weeks of the season is a further demonstration of the commitment they have made to EFL Clubs and their supporters this season. The additional 30 minutes will help tell the story of what is shaping up to be another exciting end to an EFL League campaign with no doubt plenty of twists and turns still to come across all three divisions.”
In May 2018, Quest announced it had secured the free-to-air highlights for the Sky Bet Championship, Sky Bet League One, Sky Bet League Two, Carabao Cup and Checkatrade Trophy Final in a four-year partnership with the EFL.
EFL on Quest is available to watch each Saturday throughout the season on Freeview channel 114, Freesat channel 167, Sky channel 144 and Virgin channel 217 while fans can catch up on the show via QuestOD.co.uk.
