murdoch owning would be great and i believe it would stay on free to air anyway as he would make loads of money off the competition (free to air) to pump into his pay tv empire and that is smart business

if bernie and/or cvc do not sell to murdoch or anyone else, it will not be because they are "thinking of the fans and sport". it will be because the offer was not high enough. if murdoch or anyone else makes an offer that will see the investors making a handy profit, it will be sold! money always talks.

Free to air? NOT A CHANCE!

That's how he made his billions was pay TV, Not likely to go the route of dinosaur Bernie as Murdock's empire is strictly Pay TV. Why would Murdock buy commercial rights F1 and run it contrary to his regular business?

Speed TV in NA went was totally ruined when he took over and was recently pulled from regular Canadian TV.

This whole thing is probably a total set up by Bernie, orchestrated by Bernie. Setting this up to take his billions and run......

Well..I hear he has rather large alimony payments and a little extra cash would probably help him better hide from the German Police.... :)

This might be a case of sticking with the devil you know as Murdock by all accounts is a total slime ball.
