It is the NBC Sports Network, NBC itself will only carry four of the races if I recall.

Here is the first article that came up in Google.

Well this is what the official Formula 1 website says:

NBC Sports Group and Formula One Management have announced a four-year partnership starting in 2013 that provides the American broadcasters with exclusive United States media rights to all Grand Prix races, qualifying and practice sessions on all platforms and devices.

NBC Sports Group will televise all 20 races of the 2013 season - four on NBC and 16 on NBC Sports Network - as well as qualifying, practice sessions, studio shows and re-airs, amounting to more than 100 hours of programming annually.

I hope at the very least they retain Steve Matchett. Bob Varsha does so much for Speed I assume he stays at Speed and Hobbs is old and probably ready to call it a day anyway.

So upsetting. America gets the media rights to practice sessions. I love Australia's dedication haha. We have two drivers and the only time we get practice sessions is during the Australian Grand Prix.

Well that's good that we'll get all 3 practice sessions. Speed airs P2 only while the others are streamed live with no commentary. As much as I dislike their commercial breaks, the Speed crew (especially Matchett) are pretty good.

As a SPEED TV fan, I am sad. What really worries me is that I have no idea what the NBC sports network is or where to find it on cable????

I'll be really tiddled if I only get to see four races next year :evil:

If you're on cable, you can go to zaptoit.com, enter your zip code, select you provider, and it will give you a listing and you should be able to find what channel it is for you. If your on satellite I'm not sure how to find out if you've got it or not.

Considering all the practice sessions and the race alone are already over 100 hours, i can't imagine they'll be broadcasting all of the sessions. Throwing in pre race build up and post race analysis and you'll start pushing 150 hours.

NBC Sports Network is hurting for stuff to show. That's why they made the big push and will show all sessions because of that. I am interested to see who their commentators will be.

I'm pretty sure that Bernie only sells the F1 rights as a complete package - so Network Ten will have the right to broadcast practice sessions like NBC. They just choose not to - possibly because, for most races, the time difference means that few Aussies would be awake to watch.

When the announcement was first made, I held off saying anything until I had the chance to go home and check to see if NBCSN was part of our cable package. Luckily for me, it is there (though i don't think I have ever watched it), so I will be able to watch the races. I hope they have decent commentators and cover all the practice sessions. As much as all the commercials on Speed TV bother me, at least they have done a better than decent job with Varsha, Hobbs and Matchett.

According to news article in Formula 1 official website, http://www.formula1.com/news/headlines/ ... 13935.html

"All 20 races will be live streamed on NBC Sports Live Extra, the NBC Sports Group’s live-stream platform that is available online at NBCSports.com as well as on mobile and tablet apps".

Can anyone confirm that this means we do not need cable TV to watch F1 in the US next year? I am asking this because my cable tv contract will end this year, and thinking only subscribing internet package since I already have netflix.

The Live Extra requires you to log in with your information from you cable provider. So although you'd be able to watch on you mobile device, or computer you still need to have a cable account somewhere. (or use some one else's info)

I couldn't think of any American commentators who can do the job...Maybe Scott Speed would be the right fit to give his insights

This is good news to me, we can finally drop the "NASCAR channel" from our Dish subscription!
