Default Your favorite Sports channel?

Well, my vote goes to Star Sports.

Ten Sports has a better MotoGP coverage, but no F1 or WRC.

ESPN is concentrating more on cricket and football, which i'm not a hardcore fan of.

As for DD, i've never seen anything interesting on it. And their transmission isn't as good as the others.

So Star it is, F1, MotoGP, WRC, Asian Festival of Speed and many more.

Its gotto be Star Sports. I bow down to them for bringing F1 and Moto GP into India!

Considering that the only sports I watch revolved around engines (zero cricket, no football..only motorsports) its star sports for me.

Well its Star Sports for me as well .... but Espn also coz when some thing else they are showing on Star Sports they shift F1 to Espn soooo if there was no Espn then no F1 as well (only for that race)
Ten Sports plzz I heard their comentary for F1 and way they pronounced FERRARI I left watching it ...Sometimes I used to switch it to Ten Sports for post race confy coz Star Sports takes time to show coz of Cheq. Flag ...

But its Star Sports for me

No brainer!
Star Sports is the best! The first channel we got that was fully dedicated to sports with an amazing coverage of motorsports. Great soccer coverage too.
Still rocks.

Star Sports for me as it features all my favourites F1, MotoGP, etc but no WRC. I hope they soon cover it too.

I hate the one shown on AXN, especially "Shakedown", not much of rallying there. It's more about the environment around the rally scene.

Why can't we have live telecast of all the stages??? That would be more like it.

shakedown is a waste of time. they show the highlights of all the rallies...and i n that it's 100% rally ...0 bullshit!

Rallies are difficult to cover live. However last rally in italy i think some channel telecasted the 1st SS live for the first time.

IF ur in b'lore we can get together and watch the new WRC2003 dvd that ive got....rudra and myself are planning something....mybe next week some time.
