Great news for the Australian readership!

Australia’s Network Ten (and its affiliate sports channels, One and OneHD) has signed a new contract which will see Formula 1 remain on the channel until at least the 2015 season. The renewal of the deal confirms that the sport will be seen on the same channel in Australia as it has since 2003, with new features being thrown in.

With the new deal set to run from the 2011 to 2015 seasons, all qualifying sessions and races will be broadcast live on its digital sports channels, One and OneHD, with delayed coverage following on Ten.

The exception will be the Australian Grand Prix, which will be shown live on all channels.

The new agreement follows considerably increased viewing figures as a result of the enhanced viewing opportunities and as a result Mark Webber’s excellent race-winning season, and the agreement is believed to include online, mobile and IPTV rights for the first time.

Way to go, Network Ten!
