jedd, LOL rep. comment :lol:
I wish BBC would stop worrying about quantity, and rather concentrate on quality.
Money says the 10 races they don't cover live are all outside the eurozone.
Enjoy your Valencia coverage instead of Montreal
They've already said both the Monaco and British GP's wil lbe covered.
That's what I'm saying. Neither of those are outside of Europe.
I bet the ones they don't televise will be America, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Brazil, Canada, Abu Dhabi, China and Australia. (And Bahrain too, if it ever comes back.)
If the coverage is anything like Fox/Speed (News Corp), it will be awful coverage. Of course you guys don't have commercials interrupting the race every 5 seconds so it may not be that bad. The commercials is the main thing that pisses me off, I've missed so much awesome in F1 due to US commercials.
I don't mind the occasional minute or so commercial breaks every 30-40 mins, if the commentators are up to snuff. I got Steve Slater and Gary Anderson on ESPN, and I'm getting a little tired of them calling wrong drivers, speaking when team radio is on, and the odd minute or so of silence.
From the Hammond Heaven people who got the ratings for a episode of Top Gear
don't believe me? go and have a look at BARB's website with the ratings. you'll see Antiques Roadshow and CountryFile getting 5-6million views a week. Still think it should be cancelled? it would appear quite a few people would disagree with you.
or better yet, lets take a look at the week ending 29th May 2011
I can live with a quick commercial break every 30-40 min but on Speed its every 5-10 minutes. It's ridiculous. Half the time the commercials have nothing to do with cars.
I cannot believe how the BBC has acted in effectively blocking the Channel 4 bid which would keep it on free to air TV.
I for one will not be watching it on BBC or Sky next year at all. Instead I will find some live stream on the internet, the last thing I would want is high vewing figures for the BBC and Sky right now.
Makes me wish it was back on ITV and thats saying something because their coverage was pretty poor compared to the one we have now.
Also any UK resident please sign this petition if you have done so already. Thanks.
