    Can’t wait! I do hope that NBCSN has figured out how to tag the prerace show… I was never able to set up a season pass for the prerace which was a bit annoying ( or just have the “start” of the race be the prerace…. Seems silly for this to be an issue but it was for me…

    I am completely indifferent, not for the F1 season can’t wait for that, but for streaming on NBCSN. One can only stream if they have a TV provider, but if you have a TV provider then who cares about the stream…I have internet from a cable provider, but don’t have TV from them cause in order to get channels like NBCSN I have pay round 120$, and then after the first year they always try to secretly raise the bill to like $200. I have internet and I pay a provider for it, that should be enough to allow me to stream F1 and IndyCar on NBCSN’s website

    I, for one, am glad that the F-1 coverage moved to NBCSN. Can you imagine if FOX were still doing it? We still cannot get FOX SPORTS 2 on COMCAST; and I would imagine the practices would be on FS2, then part of Quali would be moved to FS2 because the Scrub State vs Hooterville U basketball game would be going into second overtime. There would be no pre-race, because FS1 would just have to get that last re-run of Fox Sports Live in. The commercials during the race? Don’t get me started. BE must have known what was up when the contract was over for Fox.

    Are you streaming Practice 3?

    I’d just like to see a consistent treatment of every race with some before race build up,some great coverage of the race and some consistent after race coverage that each Formula One race deserves.

    Just treat every race the same and don’t stomp on the end of the race to go to another program.

    Some of the funniest moments in Formula One happen after the races at the driver interviews.

    Some of the drivers facial expressions are priceless after the races as the other drivers comment.

    The lack of F-1 internet streaming has NBC still in the dark ages. They won’t even play it on their mobile app. I would pay per view even! Sad times still for people who have cut cable. Loss of money for NBC.

      Well NBC is owned by a cable company.

    Why no FP3? Usually FP 3 is the one practice that none of the teams hold anything back.
