    Default F1 in HD ??

    I'm hoping to pick up a new HDTV in the next week or 2 ,and I'm wondering if Speed or TSN broadcast F1 in true HD ??

    Who will have the best coverage ?? Speed normally has the most coverage , but I think the British team is more informative (last year's ITV was ) on TSN . How good will the BBC team be ??
    Brundle and Ted Kravitz will still be there , so I'm hoping it will continue to be good.

    No HD this year. Just the same old widescreen upconverted SD feed.

    TSN used the ITV feed last year as well as commentary, not sure how that works this year as BBC is commercial free.

    Speed's coverage just gets better every year.

    Both are available in the upconverted HD I mentioned.

    Who will Coulthard be commentating for? I want to see how he'll be.

    The ITV coverage was great, except TSN sometimes cut off the coverage or started their broadcast late , or didn't even show the race !

    Speed's coverage is getting better all the time,I just can't stand all the NASCRAP garbage at EVERY commercial break.
    I used to love Speed for WRC,Aussie,BTCC etc., but the constant NASCRAP shit has driven (no pun meant) me away...

    I rarely ever watch Speed anymore except for F1, MotoGP and the rest of the motorcycle racing. I used to watch it all the time but I guess I'm just not red neck enough NASCAR and the rest of their dumbass reality shows.

    TSN needs to get the BBC rights for pre and post race. I'm sick of listening to Vic and Gerry Donaldson on his cell phone for pre and post race. Now that Peter Windsor is doing USF1 (still skeptical its going to happen), whose doing the Speed pre race pit lane walk or even the official post race conference?

    Here's hoping 2010 brings HDTV to F1!

    My HD clip I shot at Barcelona this year with the 5Dmk2.



    Make sure you click the HD and fullscreen button.

    Speed for F1. I like the guys that cover it. Way better than TSN.

    Would definitely love to watch it with that type of clarity! Even sounded better.

    Apparently not until 2011
    Link

    Hoping to watch the 2010 F1 season in high definition? Afraid you’re set for another disappointment.

    BBC’s Lee McKenzie has said on Twitter that FOM will not be offering Formula 1 in HD to broadcasters until 2011.

    Many other forms of motor racing have been broadcast in high def for years. This year will be the sixth season NASCAR has been broadcast in HD.

    While F1 dawdles about catching up with HD technology, football is pressing ahead with the introduction of 3D broadcasts, starting with this year’s World Cup.
    Now this is just the words of a woman who'll be covering it, and it's ME posting, so you never know.

    So much for being the most advanced auto racing in the world...

    NASCAR has been in HD since 2004

    You're watching a widescreen SD feed on an HD channel.
