Sounds like a good deal to me and high fives all around on that one.

When 7 came in, it was a breath of fresh air and the first couple years were really good. And then it slipped and just kind of stagnated.

Wonder what the digital media access will be like for folk living outside Australia?

Not a dig at you personally, but I don't understand the logic behind this. A lot of people 'refuse to pay for television'. Why? I've had MySky here in NZ for the last 6 odd years, and it's worth every bloody cent. The motorsports coverage is great for F1, Nascar and this year, the V8s. Yup, full Bathurst coverage, ad free, in HD. Lovely. Plus movies, and then there's the other crap the mrs likes to watch, which is why I have the man cave with another box full of recorded HD motorsport. For not a lot of money.

The coverage of the support categories is excellent by Foxtel and shows a great commitment to motorsport rather than just V8s which is very encouraging.

The digital rights is an interesting development and movement away from the original strategy of Warbutton for V8SA to hold onto these.

If they want me to watch their advertising billboards on wheels go around past the advertising billboards on the safety barriers (both real and the dubbed in ones) while the commentators frequently remind me of the event sponsors name then they can show it to me for free or not at all.

however there are less ads during the race on pay which means you get more time to watch racing.

based on the above theory you would prefer that

That must be some kind of record, to get TWO teev deals done in the same year!

Great to get an improved income stream over the current deal, and the previous deal, in cash.. and even more in kind!

Well done to Mr Warburton & his team.

He seems to be kicking some goals at the minute... and no signs of the sharks circling...

So, based on this, are the V8's still floundering D.R.T.?

I always start watching the races delayed on a PVR by about 30 minutes or so then I can skip through the ads.

Feels like good news all round re the coverage of the support categories (at a subscriber price of course but many sports are only on Foxtel so not a disadvantage).

I'm not sure that you're right on the digital rights separation being a "Warburton" thing - wasn't it his predecessor that did that? Happy to be corrected but think that's how it went down.

I see this announcement as a good thing - everyone now knows where they'll stand through 2014, the V8 organisation and teams have a handle on their earn from the rights structure for 2015 and beyond and the TEN / Foxtel people have got rights locked down for six years at a known cost structure.

Less viewers?

Less sponsorship?

Two pieces of advice to ten: take Crompo from channel 7 and bring back Leigh Diffey.
Great job Warburton and V8 Supercars!!!
