V8 Supercar fans in the Northern Territory, who traditionally miss out on live free-to-air television coverage of the V8 Supercar Championship Series, now can see the races live through BigPond Broadband.

V8 Supercars on BigPond Broadband provides live V8 Supercar coverage for regional areas that do not receive Network Ten's live telecast of the Championship Series.

The BigPond Broadband V8 Supercar site provides coverage of live qualifying, Top Ten shootouts, and real-time telemetry, live timing and in-car cameras during the races.

BigPond Broadband customers in the Territory can, on any V8 Supercar race weekend, fire up their PC and watch live coverage of all sessions.

Danny Honan, Area General Manager, Telstra Country Wide, said this was an exciting opportunity for Territorians, unable to be in Darwin for the V8s, to be a part of the action.

“From Timber Creek to Borroloola people can view the V8 action live via our Broadband Satellite technology. That's got to be good news for those revheads living in the bush,” he said.

Most fans living in and around the metropolitan areas of Darwin and Alice Springs will be able to access the service via ADSL while people living in all other towns and communities, even the most rural areas such as Daly Waters and Avon Downs can still get access to the service via Satellite Broadband.
