Schedule said 8:00PM the Formula One Canadian GP... knew it would be run hours before that but wanted to see one of THE TWO F-1 North American races without knowing the result.

At 8:00PM, the NBCSC is broadcasting a FRELLIN' GOLF game!!!!

"Professionalism" is defined as performance on demand... These B.S. "providers" are useless. I can get a bunch of garbage "new release" flicks if I pay ~extra~ to see 'em. They can rot for all I care. I can get Red Box DVD's for a buck to see some movie I'd care to see.

We've set alarms to get up in the middle of the night to see live broadcast of F-1 races half-way around th' planet, fercryinoutloud... and these bozo's can't put up a live feed from the same continent?!?

What carp are we gonna get for Austin?!? A BOWLING tourney?

I was better off as a kid in 1968 with an Autoweek subscription. At least I knew when I'd get to find out what the results were.

Just did the same thing. Tuned in to F1 and found golf! The other "blood sport!" Face it, the US is not the audience F1 is looking for.

With NBCSN as the carrier. When ESPN or FOX were running it, we got coverage.

I feel the same way when I want to listen to the radio in the garage,
only to find out there's a basketball game on.They play ALL of the Warrior's games,
which I could care less about.
Since they have ALL of those sports channels,WHY do the have to pre-empt
regular programing?

I saw conflicting times of 12:00 Eastern and 2:00 Eastern. Tried to get it over the antenna, no luck, shooting tragedy coverage, did watch it live online through the NBC Sports app. Still I feel your pain, and I kept seeing conflicting times on when NBC was going to run it.

I watched it on CNBC.
