Just signed up for DirecTV that has Speed HD. I know F1 doesn't broadcast in HD, but it's still so much nicer to watch on uprez signal than to watch the heavily pixelated SD broadcast!

I live in Germany and have to watch it at RTL, but I'd like to watch only 1 race at Premiere after I watched this vid :D

I watch on Speed, and I think they do a very good job. I hate it when they have an exclusive on ABC, they show 2 or 3 races out of the year, and I hate it. ABC never shows it live, and they try to make it look like its an american sport, or the commentary sucks. I hope they are no exclusives this year, and all races will be shown on Speed.

I just need to get Speed on HD, but lame COX cable dont have it, need to get DirectTV.

Do they show in Wide Screen at least? I'm thinking of switching to DirectTV.

it should be good on BBC as they plan to have a Top Gear preview show (well, presented by The top gear team) before the race, the race hosted by Hammond (he should be good if Clarkson stays away) with the race live on BBC, BBCi, mobile and internet

I watch on Speed. But their commentary is very different from ITV or Star Sports. They don'y over hype, but they don cover the aspects of the race well.

well, in the US, u pretty much have to watch on Speed, i hate it... premiere has great uninterrupted onboard footages, and ITV has martin brundle which is awesome. And obv, Fuji TV the Japanese commentators are the most enthusiastic. Speed tv people are just boring and their comments are useless, they dont cover lots of material about the race.

Speed TV makes it very hard for ppl to watch, unless you are a hardcore F1 one fan (like me) haha. otherwise, u'd fall asleep listening to bob varsha

I wish we could get more channels of F1 in the US. I would love to have the channels the other countries have like the onboard footage or the data or that muilt. screen one would be great. Hell I'd pay more but nothing is offered like that on COX.
Go Kimi Go!!!!
