F1 agrees new TV deal

Network Ten agrees new deal to show F1 in Australia.

Network Ten will continue to hold the exclusive broadcast rights to F1 in Australia until 2015, it has been announced.

Network Ten's current contract runs until the end of 2011, and the new agreement will now see it continue to show the series for a further three years.

The agreement with Bernie Ecclestone's FOM (Formula One Management) includes all of the races, which will be shown live on its digital sports channel, One, with delayed coverage on Ten, its main channel.

The only exception will be the Australian Grand Prix - and Ten will get to broadcast that live.

The deal also includes online, mobile and IPTV rights, a 'first' according to SportsProMedia.com.
