I heard Channel 7 were interested in it for here. Don't know the truth in that but I read it somewhere a while ago. I hope we get it as I need to see some motor racing over the summer!!!

Maybe Eurosport will make a bid? Do you get that on Freeview? I cancelled Sky because I hardly ever watched it.

Well, that's his argument, I guess we'll probably get it once we have a little more money, this is still good for Sky viewers anyway.

Splendid news. I have every sports channel available from British Satellite companies (Sky and what not). So I will be watching this with glee.

Sadly Eurosport isn't on Freeview at the moment, I'm hoping somebody like channel 5 will bid for highlights like they used to have for ChampCars on saturday afternoons before they moved it to very late nights.

maybe ITV even, as it is in F1 off-season.

No, ITV are rubbish like that, we won't be able to see any coverage on there. Take the Football for example, we miss tons of games because they can't be bothered to pay for the rights to show it.

Al Jazeera Sports is free in middle east, so all can watch A1GP without paying any additional money :D
