So why couldn't they schedule it on the 26th?

Good point. I don't get it, either. There are enough races 7 days apart for next season, so what's one more?

Perhaps they realise people want to watch both races, but they don't want F1 drivers coming back from the race saying how much more fun it is than F1 and how good the cars are.

that's an interesting argument. i bet it really burns the f1 paddock when they do that every year.

another good point. I wondered if we would see Alonso and Webber teaming up.

virtually all households have a cable service, so it's almost as free to air.

Eurosport has moved F1 coverage to a new by subscrition only channel - Eur2F1 - for €5,99 per month.
When not showing F1, they show a mix of car and bike races, some soccer, tennis, cycling, etc.

I'm glad I live in America where I get lots of motorsports and car shows included with my basic television service.

Which probably costs you significantly more than the equivalent of about $7 a month.

I think specialist channels or on-demand services are going to become the norm in time. We'll pay people like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon like we paid the cable providers.

It would be interesting to see someone like Netflix get in on live sports coverage.

that's actually what i'm afraid of; that the shift will simply be from cable/satellite to streaming, and the business model will stay the same. i'd much rather pay directly to the series/league, and choose what i want to license. netflix has already adopted the cable model of regularly raising prices. adding sports coverage would raise it significantly more. covering sports live is very expensive. i read once that espn accounts for 40% of the cost of american cable tv service.

I'm hoping devices like the Apple TV v4 will mean leagues/series will just develop a subscription based app to distribute their content, MotoGP have one for the ipad/iphone that is live and on-demand shortly after each race/practice etc, so hopefully it isn't too big a leap to add an AppleTV or Android streaming box app (are Android boxes a separate OS or is it the same OS/App Store as the phones/tablets?). A lot will depend on what the TV providers they sell the rights to demand. I know the UK MotoGP provider forces them to only offer the premium streaming services and not the more basic one in that market (easily worked round with a VPN at the time of purchase).

i think this is the last stumbling block at the moment. a lot of things can already be streamed, but only if you authenticate yourself as a tv subscriber, which defeats the purpose. i'm hoping this will become less and less the case as broadcast contracts expire and cord-cutters become a more powerful lobby. hopefully netflix and amazon don't pick up the baton of exclusivity deals.

Presumably TV subscribers are where there revenue comes from. I see more authentication being required over the last 6 months, presumably to stop people like me from watching the content via a VPN and to make it a little harder for cord cutters to make that decision.
