No more FTA F1. Only on Foxtel. Not sure when this kicks in.

EDIT: I think it kicks in this weekend. F1 official site says that the Malaysian GP is on ONE live this Sunday. Latest TV program guide doesn't show it.  :'(

You'd think the F1 bigwigs would realise that that's just offering their sponsors LESS audience.
That's Bernie's style but I thought Liberty would be different. :-\
But I'm one of those hardcore suckers that coughed up the Foxtel money when Ten lost the live rights. :-[
I presume Ten is only left with the Australian Grand Prix, with laws protecting events of 'national importance' from going pay exclusively.

It's still a sad day. :'(

Yep. No way going to Foxtel just for F1. But I think from the article Ten has a tight contract with F1 and sells onto Foxtel so Liberty are stuck until that runs out. I would expect/hope direct subscription deals like MLB in the States might happen after that.

You're probably correct there.
Liberty's hands  are likely tied until all Bernie's old contracts run out.
And Ten need the revenue.
The pot of gold is Liberty are very clued up on digital delivery, so a direct subscription is definitely on the cards. ;)
