Exclamation After Overdrive, Autocar India launches its own TV show

After Overdrive's venture with Overdrive on CNBC TV18, UTVi (new News Channel) and Autocar India are bringing in a new car show simply named The Autocar Show.

I saw the ad on TV just today. Hope it turns out to be more enthusiast-oriented.

A video from the show. I am quite disappointed though. Seems like just another *consumer* oriented *car* show.

another vedio of the show. This one is on the new BMW 3 series
I am not very happy with it, needs lot of improvement.


Here is another one, This one is on the new accord. I think it has being shot in some place abroad as they mention that the car coming to india would be a little different. This is actually the first show of autocar.

For some reason, none of the UTV network channels (all are free-to-air, though) are aired on Tata Sky.Atleast that is the case with my friend's connection.

I don't think this is the case. I had to activate "lifestyle package" I guess to get UTV movies as I was getting a reminder that its free only till 1st may. Btw, I feel we are going out of topic but I feel that we should start a new thread to discuss free to air channels which we don't get on Satellite television. It ain't fair that we are not allowed to view free to air channels. I have noticed that in case a new news channel comes in, silently TATA sky removes some other news channel.

I saw the next episode of the Autocar show being shot on Palm Beach road, Navi Mumbai on Saturday (30th, October) afternoon. Hormazd Sorabjee was driving the new BMW 5 series (dark metallic brown) behind a new Mercedes E350, white in color. I guess it is a shootout between the new 5 and the new E350.

Like all the reviews, Hormazd was driving and talking about the car while a white Indica with two camera men sitting in the boot shooting the car in motion, was on the right of the BMW.

The show should air this Thursday (04th, November) at 22.30 on UTVi - (Bloomberg?) or next week tops.

Cheers!
