Dont! DONT remind me about james allen! God that was some hard times!

I can hear him now, the way he used to shout and almost scream
I was SO happy when the BBC took it from iTV!!!

I will say, tho, his commentary on the 08 Monza race that Vettel won in the STR was very good. They captured the incredible underdog story very well.

Everything else was just jacking off over Hamilton.

I see that ESPN is to use Sky TV coverage. I just read that next week they will be doing a live digital feed from the test each day. I wonder if ESPN will have anything to show leading up to the first race? If they really want to embrace the US, they need to have more programming than just the races.

My wonder is... Will ESPN actually show all that SKY shows or just be selective and still not show practices and no commercials etc.
I can foresee ESPN still having commercials and all that.
The way I see ESPN they are greedy bastards that will not show the U.S. the full compliment that SKY will show the U.K. and Canada etc..

I hope not. Liberty would not be smart to do a deal with ESPN and not NBC and then not show what at least what NBC Sports showed. I hope they show all the practices like NBC Sports did. I really liked when NBC Sports Live(Online) 1st practice with no commentary. It is nice to just listen to the motors and not hear the dribble from the commentators. :D

Jeeez that's so wrong. It's what they promised but never delivered on.

I watched on the mobile app, and 100% of all practices/qualifying and races were broadcast live on there. Practice had zero commentary however, it was just the world feed with terrible sound levels.

Many times practice and or qualifying were postposed for their convenience.

Keep in mind that ESPN3 is their online streaming service. Anything listed for ESPN3 you will need to stream trough their app.

Figures that out after a while of looking through my umpteenhundred channels. So already a step backwards and the season hasn't yet begun.

When you have to put up with Croftys pathetic attempt for commentary, you will soon realise how good you had it!!
