    They only show Practice 2, again with possible tape delays as in Question 3.
    6. If they are a subscription channel, what does a full year’s subscription cost (excluding limited time offers)?
    The cost would the cable package that you have chosen from your provider. Which varies from company to company. There is no specific cost for F1 on top of the package.

    No.
    8. Please supply any other relevant information such as alternative viewing options
    There is no other viewing options. If your cable provider carries NBC Sports Network, it will be blacked out for the entirety of the session.

    @keithcollantine (Re Spain) Next year is the last season we’ll get to see free on TV. Most people have switched to the subscription channel because the journalists we have here are fanatics and not good at their job, so instead of waiting a couple years most fans chose to pay now to have a better coverage of the sport. So far from what I’ve heard they’re doing a good job

    One could watch it via RTL on Deukom, but that costs about the same. Other than that, any online streaming is region limited and mostly not worth the hassle.

    I am updating Greece with more info and corrected value per year.

    Subscription TV
    OteTV started as a 3play packet for the customers of OTE (telephone and ADSL network). So you could only watch OTETV only if your telephone line was OTE as well. That changed 2 years ago when OTETV started broadcasting from Eutelsat 9E (Same time he got the F1 rights). ADSL subscription is still on offer but lacks the HD channels the satellite (brother) has to offer. Price is exactly the same as per year Subscription OTETV basic + OTE SPORTS (for the Formula 1) = 21,90 Euro per month = 263 Euros per year (minimum 12 months of subscription )if you are not an OTE customer and 19,90 = 240 Euros per year, if you are.

    All transmissions of OTETV are studio transmissions, meaning they have no one actually on the circuit.

    1. Greece
    2. OTETV
    3. All Live, no ads interruption.
    4. Yes, No ads interruption , SAT FULL HD
    5. Yes, No ads interruption , SAT FULL HD
    6. Roughly 260 Euros
    7. No online Coverage yet.
    8. ALPHA TV. Is a free national channel that only broadcasts F1 on Sundays. All the European races that start at 15:00 (Greek time) are certainly LIVE. The rest it depends.. Some live some delayed . Standard Definition channel with ads during the race.

    Some details on the Czech Republic.

    I have no idea what the original contributor meant by “not free to air”, so I’ll leave explanation to him/her.

    TV Nova is a private channel that broadcasts on our default public terrestrial DTV multiplex, therefore it is free. It broadcasts all races that are not at night (I assume the list given above is correct, never cared to compile one).

    The broadcast is interrupted three times for commercials, and given that most races have boring periods that can be reasonably well predicted, they usually manage to fit them in reasonably well.
    The commentator is so-so. It is a guy who has been doing it for years, so he does know about the sport, but sometimes he misses interesting developments in a race and is not as funny as he thinks he is. I guess he’s reasonably OK. He has usually another guy on the line who actually worked in McLaren for some years and still has his contacts in the paddock, so he does have interesting things to say. I gather it’s this other guy who gets interesting stuff (caps, used gloves etc.) and pretty much every race there is some sort of a quizz for these prices running on their dedicated F1 web site, so I guess the Czech F1 fan does not have it really bad.

    For qualifying one has to go to Nova Sport, which is a pay channel. I prefer to watch it streamed online.
