Default What channel to watch Formula 1 racing in Fort Lauderdale

Hi,

Being a Formula 1 fan I planned my cruise so that I can watch the last race the morning before the cruise 8) (don't tell my wife).
As we will already be in the FLL area I was wondering which channel would broadcast the race live (Nov. 1st early morning Abu Dhabi race).

Thanks a lot.

Boudewijn

The best chance to see F-1 would be on the Speed Network. Most hotels use a satellite service, particularly for their Pay-Per-View services, and may not carry this channel. You might want to check out the sports bars.

Thanks. I confirmed that the Speed Channel will broadcast the race. Just looked into sportsbars but they're all closed at the time of the race (7.30AM EST). Guess I would have to put my trust in the hotel......
