But ya know what, in defense of Speed TV, their F1 coverage is just amazing! Plus their commentators for that are great too. They announce how from like 9 laps (out of 70) to the end, they go without interruption and then start throwing in the ads right after the race. The MotoGP presentation just seems lacking a bit. The commentators are surely excited but everything's so overly exaggerated. And the other commentator, who was a racer I think - his voice does not carry well. But they, be thankful that we get to watch it, right...

And with this DVR thing now, I can't watch live TV anymore, commercials just suck. Even if a race is live, I'll wait a while till the DVR starts and then start skipping the commercials I used to love cool commercials, but only the first time. I hate seeing Bridgestone ads with the song "the wheel goes round" how stupid and I'm sick of Bibendum (Michelin Man) going around the track in an SL500, that commerical is like 2 years old! and that Castrol GTX ad, how old is that. At least use new ads now and then... and I hate 'get out of debt' ads, most annoying

so in the end... DVR is life changing

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.
