With tongue in cheek, SH. reacts with the idea-suggestion that ANT1 will hurt the institution, the F1 Championship.
May they be rumours, malicious information, that the live telecasts of F1 from his channel will be annihilated Amarousiou, in his free expression. Essentially forcing viewers to subscribe to ANT1+, channel that has nothing else to offer in television events.
Coverage with goodwill from its presence Takis Pournarakis and his Panos Seitanidis, and it is unthinkable that the free channel does not broadcast at least all the European matches live.
It is a beautiful habit to connect to ANT1 at noon on Sunday to watch the F1 races. We were leaving Lagonissi with little children to go to Piraeus to watch the matches from ERT on a color receiver and to listen to Pavlos Alepi to kindly teach us Villeneuve and his company. Support then his texts Theo Lazaki, of Vassili Gousia and other important ones. Professors.
The fact that such a choice will affect the fanatic (but not only) audience, but also the advertisers. Already the breaks on the free channel due to commercials and the anger they cause in the viewer make those who handle the necessary advertising budgets think about their choice. Everything happens for a reason.
The same they will no longer have any reason to show themselves, if you have to research to find out when and if the match is being broadcast. Directly to the subscription and sometimes to filming in the free.
Live TV coverage, as well as the qualifying tests, only by ANT+in order to create conditions for upgrading and establishing their subscription.
Stubborn the Greek, strange when pressed and forced, will be disturbed. He will be bitter and will react by blacklisting a favorite channel with sports roots. When he was in charge of the sports department the beast, o Mr. Stavros Tsochos. Back when F1 races were described by the late, teacher Aris Stathakis and the specialist Theo Lazakis. Leaders!
Correspondingly, the support of the television coverage, the description of the matches, is of a particularly high level today by real F1 editors. But, no one will accept the mandatory subscription to “plus”.
A strong product is discredited and the Greek TV viewer, who deserves it, is brutally insulted better behavior. It deserves respect, with perfect coverage and perfect information, and not necessarily a choice over the Internet or other solutions. Even subscription, in foreign pockets.
… goes beyond the typical concept of motorsport, being an orchestra where people make the difference, whether they create, evolve, adapt and coordinate, or the hero pilots drive and communicate the magnitude of the institution through their own and their machine's limits. Confrontation fortified in a very special community, adored by young people and inspired and adapting their sporting activity or professional career. It is a benchmark that goes beyond driving technique and horsepowereven the times, maybe even the results.
None of these and all together, and no one has the right to do ta his business games interpreting a television rights contract. The fact that, if the selection of ANT1+ as the sole solution for live television coverage of F1 in 2024 goes ahead, it will prove to be an agreement that it does not protect, but exposes the institution.
Exposed, the presenters?
Nothing to do with. If possible! They are doing their job and, by the way, let's remember that Pournarakis taught professional ethics. When he didn't cooperate about him Alpha and when he stayed away from his television coverage state station. Then, in parallel connection with CosmoteTV, which many remember. Accordingly, Panos Seitanidis, leading Greek F1 editor, taught telecasting at Alpha at the time. With the deceased Ariadni Gerasimidou, whose ethos and style we miss, and them stop Katsimi and Vasilis Argyropoulos.
It's just good to let's not forget events and actions and returns as a resultin the hope that Mr. Kyriakou's wisdom will work, and F1 will be covered in such a way as to promote and not discredit the beloved channel.
We stay tuned. From “the day after tomorrow” 5 February back in the cockpit for the first track tests, some thirty days before the premiere, on Sunday, March 2 at Bahrain._ S. X.
