So I think the BTCC stays where it is
Yes but ITV are talking about putting ITV4 on tv subscription services and taking it off freeview. Men and Motors is only available via Sky/Virgin/BT, ITV want their digital channels, which includes ITV4, to go the same way, or so the articles I've been reading say.
So if that happens that means no more BTCC on freeview. And I'm loathe to pay my TV tax and then another TV tax on top of it, even if I could afford to, just for the BTCC/F1 and the few other programs I watch.
Besides I wish the BBC and Alan Gow would do a similar deal to what Bernie Ecclestone has done with the BBC, the BBCs coverage of F1 especially their iPlayer re-runs, which due to working shifts and thus missing live races I rely on, have been top notch for most of the season this year.
You can't say that about the ITV player.
