one five five should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
If Ten went under, would 7 or 9 want to pay the current price that TEN does for the "backup" coverage?

Given Foxtel's interests in TEN, Network 10 having the rights fits in best with the current Foxtel Supercars deal, would they get the same co-operation out of 7 or 9?

V8s are still under 5s so does that also point to a change that we didn't know about. With Ten and Win being linked to does this mean that the whole network 10/8 will fold or just one side.
What happened here was that WIN for years had a content deal with the 9 Network. In mid-2016 they couldn't come to an agreement, so 9 did a content deal with SCA (who formerly took Network 10 programming). This then forced Network 10 and WIN to do a content deal, so programming on both stations effectively just swapped.

The FTA TV deal for V8s is still with Network 10

Won't happen for two reasons

1. It can't happen by law for Bathurst, it must be shown FTA and have priority over PayTV coverage (hence why PayTV has to have ads in their coverage of this race)

2. It would be suicide to completely ditch FTA coverage for streaming.
