    Can anyone help? Bell Media have moved the British GP to TSN2 which is not available on my cable. SpeedTV is on my cable, but has been blacked out since early this year for F1 live programming (and I see from their schedule that they’re broadcasting qualy but not the race.)

    Does anyone know what channels are covering the race?

    Thanks – Paul

    In the U.S. the British GP is being broadcast on Fox. Speed TV carries everything else for this race (practice, quali, etc.) but the race is on the FOX network.

    Thanks – that’s what I [vaguely] thought, and I can’t get it on my cable so I’ve just ordered satellite, being installed Wednesday morning. The cable company is miffed — we’ve had it in our house since 1971 — but they agreed that Bell is one huge monopoly; they own TSN/TSN2 as well as my phone line; they are the ones that black out SpeedTV for F1 (I used to be able to zap between Speed and the Beeb during commercials) and now they own my new dish. Oh, well … at least I can watch Silverstone.

    I ought to add that Silverstone for me is a bit sacred. My father took me to see my first F1 race there in 1950 – he knew Reggie Parnell (finished 3rd at that race) quite well, so we were in the paddock.
