Network Ten has extended its partnership with Formula One Management to exclusively broadcast F1 racing in Australia, with the deal for the first time including the broadcast of content online, on mobile and IPTV rights.
The new five-year agreement, which commences in 2011, will run until the end of the 2015 season.
All Formula 1 races throughout the season will be broadcast live on the network’s digital sports channel One, with delayed coverage on its main channel, Ten. Qualifying sessions will be seen on One.
The Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix race will also be broadcast live simultaneously on Ten.
One will also feature other motor sports in the new year, including Moto GP, Nascar, the Australian Rally Championship and the ANDRA Pro Series drag racing.
