Hey all, 

Bathurst is on this weekend, does anyone know if there will be (or is) a SAT feed on D1 that we will be able to pickup like the last couple of years?

Anyone know the details? What size dish, freq and transponder etc?

Cheers

Nothing like uninterrupted, raw footage. 

And this year we only have coverage on the Sunday. Not both days.

I'm forced to watch on TV3, but these guys usually have a handle on where it might appear on satellite:

It IS on topic.

If you want decent coverage, you have to pay for it.

Free TV and you moan - what a joke.

you cant win, people moan when you have to pay to see top sport events and when one is available free to air, people still moan.

I'm not moaning at all. I have no problem paying for top sporting events. I have sky and pay for my sports accordingly. I don't think Sky have coverage of this event.

All that aside, for the last 2 years I have had a feed right of D1/2 that is awesome non-stop racing, and the fact there is only one day of coverage this year on TV3 it would be cool to do it again.

Anyway, as per my first post.. If anyone has sat details for this year let me know.

Cheers

I'm guessing a standard sky dish setup for mysky with a feed to a PC (SD sat tuner card) doesn't cut it any more?
Do we need something like a 95cm dish?
The weather may not be helping too much either.

Race is on the v8 YouTube channel outside of aus and nz. So far I have been able to watch other sessions on the v8 website multimedia page.
Maybe if you geek enough to trick YouTube you can watch
