I wonder which of the P1 teams will get official ACO TV onboards now that the situation's changed. Guess:

* Alonso vehicle
* "The other Toyota"
* #1 Rebellion
* TBD of the Ginettas (if Kubica's there, that one)

Maybe one of the Dallaras if they can be bothered but probably not. No CLM because the cameras despise them for some reason

It will be nice to have the entire LM24 on one channel here in the U.S., instead of Fox's channel hopping and coverage gaps. The Racer.com article says Velocity will rely on the Eurosport feed, which I have not seen before. It can't be worse than the Fox announcers!

Eurosport should be good enough as long as they don't use Carlton Kirby.

I disagree, last year's coverage by Fox was boosted by the addition of Brad Kettler and Tommy Kendall on the broadcasting team, both a welcome bonus. They likely won't be back with ES. Cole and Kirby will make for a snooze fest.

Eurosport should have Jeremy Shaw from IMSA so that should be familiar to you at least. Last year's absence was an exception after covering every year pior but IIRC it was hinted on air that he should be back in 2018

Now, according to Hindy, Martin Haven will be doing the ACO feed instead of Euosport this year - with TBA people as per usual...

For ES that will mean even more air time for the horrendous nightmare gang of Cole & Parsons & Halliday & most notoriously Carlton Kirby of course... assuming he isn't covering cycling. However David Addison is good and the driver analysts they get tend to be decent (for the most part) like Damien Faulkner

The onboard cameras are bought and paid for by the respective teams - it's a purely commercial arrangement with ACO or WEC (depending on whether its Le Mans or a six-hour race). So if one team doesn't have an onboard it's because they have not paid for one. I believe there is a limit to the number of cameras available, so it's not possible for all cars to have one.

Okay but let's face it, if Toyota said "no we don't want to pay for it" for some reason, do you really think ACO would not put one in the car anyway? Same if this Button thing materializes... It's like shooting yourself in the foot if not.

Anyway, there were number of years where the only onboard cameras in the entire broadcast all week were the works LMP1s and works Corvettes. Before the more recent times, in the Audi-Pug era, I do recall odd year with random Porsche or Pescarolo onboard but only for a total of 10 seconds all week so must've not put much money into it then...

Recently the standard's for the cameras seems to have been:
- Works LMP1s (all cars of each mfg)
- Single Rebellion
- Single "Alpine" or other Oreca
- Random Onroak representative
- Works LMGTE-PROs (at least 1 cam each marque)
- Possible celebrity wagons

Every lmp1 has an additional 3kg for camera equipment. They're not on the car for show are they?

(Slightly off Topic) Where will the (other?) WEC rounds be shown on television in UK/Europe?

Also, is the WEC app is the only official video streaming option?

Yeah but most of them will be carrying dummy 3kg ballast instead of actual camera.

Eurosport will have full coverage for LM and "whatever" coverage for the other races

However Eurosport Player will have every round in full (separate feed with natural sound)

Isn't Eurosport Player unavailable outside Europe (unless using a VPN)?

So basically same situation as with WEC app in US.
