No F1 HD for a while

looks like the Beeb are a few years away,,,

For all those Formula One fans out there, it has been confirmed by Roger Mosey, BBC’s Director of Sport that the 2009 coverage on the BBC will not be available in high-definition.

In discussion with a number of comments made on his blog, Roger confirmed that whilst they’d very much like F1 in HD, it’s not available yet.

F1 won’t yet be available in HD though we’d very much like it to be. I’ll keep you posted.

When quizzed further into the reasons why, Roger stated that no HD world feed is presently available.

I’ve just spoken to our F1 team and they confirm that no HD world feed is available, though they say there may have been one or two experiments in the past and/or some “upconversion”. But we promise we’re not wilfully avoiding HD.

It’s a shame that F1 won’t be in HD this season, especially given how popular F1 has become over the last 2 years and it’s prominent place on BBC’s flagship channel for all races and qualifying, with red button interactive services for the practice days. It would have been great promotion for both BBC HD and Freesat, but some good news at least is that Roger Mosey hopes to have all BBC sports coverage in HD by 2012.

Re: No F1 HD for a while

as stated by Roger Mosey there is no HD feed for them to show, FOM who produce all the races (apart from Monaco and Japan) don't provide a HD feed and don't film it in HD so there isn't much the BBC can do about this.

You can watch the F1 in Cinemas but that is only an upscaled SD picture and not a true HD picture.
