IndyCar Series Discussions

Sunday's Grand Prix of Long Beach (4pm ET), one of the most prestigious event on the IndyCar calendar, will not be broadcast on Canadian TV: No live broadcast, not even a delayed telecast is schedule, both in English & French.

In English, it's normally on Sportsnet 360, but for Long Beach, Rogers decided that WWE (not live BTW) is more important and the race will not be on air. The only legal way to watch the GP in Canada will be via Sportsnet's OTT service: Sportsnet NOW.

IndyCar isn't broadcast in french anymore since TVA Sports didn't renew their contract at the end of 2017.

I was wondering what was going on because originally they had a one hour timeslot, and now nothing. Good timing with Canadian Robert Wickens being so competitive.

My guide (and PVR record list) shows it at 1pm to 4pm on Sunday Apr 15 on SN360.

That's what the SN schedule showed earlier this week (4-7PM EDT), but no longer. Rogers originally only had 1 hour at 4PM, but the IPG has been updated, so now nothing...

Your provider IPG probably just hasn't been updated.

Scott Moore, Sportsnet President, has tweeted that the race will be on Sportsnet 360 after all.

Haha...just after I read your post, I went into my Gateway app and it was there and then disappeared before my eyes! Hopefully it will come back before Sunday or I'll record whatever it says and hope for the best.

I just checked my Telus PVR recording schedule and magically there it was . Long Beach Grand Prix. Sportsnet 360 ( Channel 918HD ) at 1:00 PM PDST Sunday.

Funny thing is... I hadn't scheduled it to be recorded yet.

I guess enough people screamed and shouted....

The Alabama race, rain delayed from yesterday, will supposedly air at 11:30AM today on SN360. It's not in the Rogers IPG, so I've just set the programme on at that time to record and added 3 hours...
