Well this is really more relevant to us Indian viewers, but anyways.

Apparently most of the races are going to be telecast on ESPN in India, with Star Sports and the newly launched Star Sports 2 completely dedicated to the Premier League. In the past Star Sports did all the races so you guys might want to check if your cable operator/DTH provides ESPN.

Also all practice sessions are going to be shown live this season.

And most importantly, NO MORE STEVE SLATER! We are going to get Sky commentary this season, so Brundle and Crofty.

I also suggest our Asian friends to double check the TV listings, what with all the FOX sports rebranding and stuff.

I know the Quali is gonna be shown on ESPN. Havent check the race timings yet. But the practice is on star sports at 6:00 am. Too bad Slater is gone... I liked him... Brundle is good too. Where have they started Star Sports 2, im on Tata Sky, havent seen it yet.
PS: I hope they've kept Paula Malai Ali. Shes good eye candy.

I've always enjoyed the practice sessions even on live timing but now that they will show live, it's more the merrier.

I liked Steve Slater & enjoyed his commentary along Chris Goodwin.

Everybody to their own... I disliked Paula Malai as she seemed to be nothing more than "eye candy" - her on-location reports (i.e. attending the parties) were particularly pointless and annoying :( .

Steve Slater is a good presenter - well-informed and with no irritating quirks that I noticed, but Brundle is good so I will be v happy if we get his commentary.

Living in Thailand, my TV guide has recently been cut-down, so I've no idea whether F1 will be shown on ESPN as it only lists Star Sports.

ESPN is now Fox Sports in almost all Asian countries outside the subcontinent. Their website is now foxsportsasia.com, no longer espnstar.com.

I thought only the Indian GP(may be Singapore too) practice sessions were shown last year on Star Sports.
At least in India that was the case, I believe.

Then you didn't do it legally. America, Korea, Abu Dhabi and Brazil practices were never shown.

@SOH: I didnt know star sport showed illegal broadcasts. But I can assure you that I did watch India, America, Abu Dhabi I dont remember them showing Brazil. But those 3 definitely I did watch them on SS. I tried looking for the tv schedule on espn star site but looks like they changed the whole site to Fiox sports. So I cant find it. They used to have an option to check the previous schedule. If i do find it i'll post it.

This is great news. I used to watch the practice sessions it other "sources" with low video quality so it's exciting to finally
be able to see all sessions live and hd! And yeah, thank god they got rid of Steve Slater.

YES! Watching quali on the Star Sports channel, but it is obviously showing ESPN/Fox as Martin Brundle is commentating!

I was confusing Steve Slater with the guy who presents the programme. Now I realise my mistake, I'm over the moon to have Brundle commentating rather than Slater who, with the best will in the world was an appalling commentator.

No you're not the only one, honestly I was surprised when I watched F1 just now and it was Martin and Ted that was commentating and not him.. I'm starting to miss him already :(

There is a different ESPN HD channel. In India we have to pay the DTH provider separately for HD channels, I don't know how you can get it on the other side of the border.

I disagree. He is a very knowledgeble person. He is a Motorsport journalist who writes articles for Autosport, Times and on the Espnstar site. Ive heard him and Chandok recall some obscure events which they related to some races which was impressive. But yes while commentating you dont always remember all the events and the dates and the rules on the go. (If that what you mean by clueless) take todays case, Brundle and Ted didnt know that there is a rule that says if qualifying doesnt happen at all, The grid will be lined up numerically. So thats that. But if you compare today commentary of Brundle and Ted to Slaters and Chandhok, then Slaters was much more lively. Although all 4 are pretty knowledgeble.
