You don't have to. It will also be streamed on all of the Supercars social media pages.

Supercars season could run into 2021 and Supercars investigating TV-only event viability

Much like most other sporting codes, Supercars is still living in a parallel universe in believing that things will be back to normal shortly. This is going to run for at least 6 months, so fourteen events, forget it. Best we can realistically hope for is for a couple of events at the end of the year. As for the championship, call it null and void.

They have no option, they have to talk it up, to do otherwise would be suicidal to the financial health of the category. He can't admit that racing this year is tenuous at best and most likely wishful thinking.

They don’t have a tv deal for 2021 and even if they get one it is likely to be for loose change.Articles in the press suggest the virus may tip Foxtel into bankruptcy and 7 whose value is not much more than 10% of what it was a few years ago are having to negotiate with their bankers to keep trading.The other networks might take it for free but are in no position to pay.
A lot of professional sport is going to be collateral damage from this which shows what a house of cards it was to begin with.

If my info is right, Fox are going to add the A League to Rugby Union as sports they will drop. I think Banksie said this previously, something tells me Supercars might be well placed amongst all of this, Fox are going to need some sports to make Kayo seem like a good deal.

Still wont be the economic environment to get anything approaching the current deal IMHO.
But relatively well off in not having to resort to a deal with Optus one would think.

Correct on both counts. Rugby Union would kill for any TV deal right now. They are shot.

Foxtel’s big mistake was paying way over the odds for any domestic sport -excluding ARL and NFL-and then not getting any proportional return in increased subscriptions.Supercars is just as much a part of this as A League,Rugby Union and Cricket.
What they are doing in a state of financial distress is ending all these contracts so they have some money to go after AFL and NRL at the next contract renewal.Supercars will be part of these cuts.
All that is presuming Foxtel will still exist in a few months.Today News Ltd closed their regional papers and given that the Murdoch’s have had to personally bail out Foxtel pre virus to the tune of several hundred million dollars they might soon decide to pull the plug.

Foxtel mightn't exist, Kayo definitely will.
