DirecTV or something, leave the local person out of it. What is strange is that my DVR did not pick it up. Recorded practice 1/2, qualifying but not the race. Decided to get up and watch it live and only missed the pull away from start-finish.

I hear you can download torrents of the race a few hours after its over, or so I hear.

OK. Do you want play by play or for everybody to STFU and let you watch it later? mike...

PS, do not come back to your own thread or you will be INFORMED of the outcome.

My DVR did the same as NoOne's.

No this is the local news and nothing to do with either direct tv or Comcast. This is a decision made by someone in management at KPRC.
It IS the local person.

It is its own dedicated channel on there.

I have DirecTV and it's not live on channel 220 which is NBC Sports. The local NBC station is showing it live, and that is a local decision.

I'm on DirecTV and getting it on the Local NBC affiliate out of Dallas.

I know of no dedicated F1 channel anywhere.

Channel 220 is NBC Sports HD, which shows all of the F1 events.

There are certain races which apparently they are showing on local stations, similar to what they did with Fox/Speed but the race is being shown at 10:30am EST on 220 along with the pre-race show at 10am.

So yes, F1 does have a dedicated provider, it is NBC Sports which is channel 220 on DTV and has shown every single F1 race this year, including all the specials/pre-race programs.
