    Exclusive: Digital F1 set to return in 2004
    11-09-2003


    A pitpass source claims that plans are already "well underway" for Bernie Ecclestone's Digital F1 TV service to return in 2004.
    At this point it's unclear whether the Ecclestone will once again provide a pay-for TV service for race fans or will simply become the primary TV broadcaster at all events.

    Our source claims that negotiations have been ongoing for some time and that in recent weeks there has been a flurry of (secret) activity as Ecclestone prepares to bring the project out of mothballs.

    Ecclestone spent an estimated £50m setting up Digital F1, a service that he believed would revolutionise the sport and in many ways led to the current situation whereby F1 is owned by a number of banks following the EM.TV/Kirch saga.

    Digital F1's multi-screen options allowed fans to get closer to the action, and garner more information, than ever before. Rather than vapid time-filling interviews with 'B' list celebrities, Digital concentrated on what really mattered, both on-track and in the paddock.

    The service was first introduced to mainland Europe in 1997, a time when Jacques Villeneuve was slugging it out with Michael Schumacher. However by the time the service was introduced to the UK (2002) F1 was on the wane thanks largely to the utter domination of Michael Schumacher and Ferrari.

    The high prices (£12 per race) coupled with the lack of real action meant that race fans opted for free-to-air broadcasting, complete with advertisements and (often) banal coverage. In Britain a £50 season ticket was introduced but this was still not enough to attract the punters and as a result Ecclestone pulled the plug.

    There was talk in late 2002 and early this year that Ecclestone might still retain the service and that Digital F1 would become the primary broadcaster at every round of the World Championship, but this idea was also ditched along with a large percentage of the workforce.

    With the current title fight looking set to go down to the wire this would be a perfect time for Ecclestone to re-introduce it. Furthermore now that race fans have had a taste of the service and appreciate the in-depth coverage it provides, its subsequent withdrawal - coupled with the improvement in on-track action - has created a real demand. Another Ecclestone masterstroke - create the demand by withdrawing it?

    Although the service was closed down at the end of last year, all the equipment has been kept in pristine condition at Ecclestone's Biggin Hill HQ, indeed we hear that a local company has been contacted to provide additional equipment.

    There's no official word from Ecclestone, but our source claims that plans are well advanced and the service will return for 2004.

    du kannst dich ueber den neuen Thread ruhig aergern, das Thema passt aber ihmo nicht mehr in den alten Thread.

    Es geht jetzt darum ob Kofler wieder einsteigt oder ob Ihm auf vielfachen Kundenwunsch natuerlich, bei der jetzigen Uebertragungsart bleibt ;-).
