sounds like it was a great race- and it seems to be turning into a good season as well
how annoying that it;s hidden away on ESPN which I refuse to pay for on top of the extra I pay for Premier Sports & Sky SPorts for NASCAR and ATP Tennis respectively
come July it may not be on our screens at all- another stonking good move by the Indy Car brain trust!
I doubt Indycar were aware of the terms of Disney's deal with BT when they signed. And given the reported viewing figures from last year on Sky I suspect ESPN UK paid about 43p for the rights.
Like you, I refuse to pay extra to not watch kickball. However, it is very
easy to find reliable and stable live streams of ESPN UK. If you can find the Sky New Zealand one they even stick with the action when NBC goes for an ad break ;) As far as I can tell, ESPN UK will continue as it is at present until the end of the year. Once BT Sports starts, all the football will presumably migrate to that - which might
be good news, in that IndyCar would presumably be a cheap Sunday night schedule-filler for them.
