F1 broadcasting in Uruguay
Formula 1 is being broadcasted in Uruguay with a 2-4 hour delay by Monte Carlo Televisión. This channel used to air it live until PSN, later Fox Sports bought F1 broadcasting rights for some Spanish-speaking South American countries. Where should this information be added? -- NaBUru38 18:37, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
ITV streaming online from 2008
ITV are now streaming free practice, qualifying and the race live on their website. I wouldn't be surprised if other countries' broadcasters do the same. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 00:42, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
Expansion and New Name
- I've only just registered but I am responsible for the recent revisions to the World Feed broadcasters section. I feel the table of present host broadcasters adds new clarity to this article, over the rather chaotic old system. I've improved the accuracy of the list of former host feed broadcasters, but finding a definitive history for some races will be a challenge.(Incast (talk) 19:33, 19 February 2009 (UTC))
- Nice work there Incast! I've rejiged it further, with it now in two main section and a few sub-sections underneath. Thoughts? D.M.N. (talk) 19:39, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Official internet broadcasters (where?)
Here in Italy only a pay-per-view has right for the Live Practice.
If I go there  I cannot see the video because "Sorry, this media is not available in your territory", so I think I cannot see also the live streaming. So, probably BBC Online, RTL and La Sexta has right for only some territories and block the other IPs. But what IPs? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:44, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
- It is broadcast through out the Middle-East via the Badr4 satellite, not just Bahrain. Yosef1987 (talk) 14:22, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
Broadcast in HD?
Speed carries F-1 in HD, or at least it seems to, in 16:9 format. This would seem to make the final paragraph in the first section incorrect? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 14:18, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
The feed is not HD, but is broadcast on a HD channel. Its the same here in Australia. Also 16:9 format does not imply HD, it is the aspect ratio whereas HD refers to the resolution. I think currently F1 is produced in 720x576px and HD is 1280x720px or 1920x1080px.(Crictv69 (talk) 11:38, 9 June 2010 (UTC))
Free to view coverage
Can the table be edited to show which channels are free to view/air and which are on a pay to view basis, either pay per view or annual contract? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:17, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
Arab league flag???
I've removed the Arab League flag which was being used to represent 'Middle East and North Africa' is it is neither accurate nor appropriate to use in these circumstances. The Arab League is a political organisation not a representation of sports-casting and it does not represent all countries in the region anyway. The use of flags which are "sort of close" should be stamped out. Flags should not be used to provide a bit of colour. --Falcadore (talk) 02:47, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
United States broadcast
Speed TV and FOX have aired Formula 1 for years, most events live, and yet it is not listed on the site. Why is that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Akemi Loli Mokoto (talk • contribs) 18:56, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
I removed the collapsed 2011 table from the article. We can't have a massive new table like that every year - the article would quickly become too big. I suggest the 2012 table is given a column for "year" or something. Also, the 2011 table (like the 2012 one) was basically unreferenced, so I didn't see any point in retaining it.--Pontificalibus (talk) 14:48, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
The current table is basically unsourced. People keep changing and adding details without citing a source to show that these changes are accurate. Unless someone starts adding sources to the table I am minded to delete it as that would seem to be the best way of getting people to start building a sourced version.--Pontificalibus (talk) 15:32, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
The problem is though is that with lots of sources the table would be an absolute mess to edit- perhaps sourcing at the bottom of the table would be a good strategy.--CF1V8 (talk) 04:21, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
Biased towards the BBC?
Even though I don't like the BBC, the article has "driver tracker, pitlane feed" etc. whereas Sky doesn't - I don't know about other countries. I'm only requesting this because when I changed from "Short/Extended Highlights" to "Highlights", I got lambasted by an IP address who kept on reverting it! Spa-Franks (talk) 16:52, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Is it really necessary to have all of the spare/guest commentators in the table? It seems that not to me. It makes the table seem very cluttered and confusing. The main commentators might miss the race for whatever reason, so they have to have spares, but they are not the official commentators though.
NEW US broadcaster
All races live (currently 3 free-to-air races are delayed as races in Europe are run in the early hours) 4-year deal with NBC Sports. Canada, Austin, Brazil and Abu Dhabi on NBC...the rest and all qualifying & practice on NBC Sports http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/49410415/ns/sports-motor_sports/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:17, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
New italian broadcaster
NBC Sports only broadcasted Practice 1 and 3 for Australia. For the rest of the season, they've only done P2, Quali and Race, like SPEED did for years.--Josh Mertz (talk) 12:54, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
