...
So just the first half hour, or is that meant to say Sat 1130 to Sunday 1405 ?

German Eurosport seem to think they’re covering the first session on Thursday then, although no-one else thinks there will be pictures available, including people who really should know

This is in line with what they've done in the past. E1 shows the first hour, overnight and the last few hours, with E2 picking up the evening and morning with the odd gap for other events and the practice

Analogue German Eurosport had an English sound channel, which has gone in the digital age, so you now have to listen to Radio LM instead. It was only 10 years ago

I watch it a lot on TV through my Amazon Firestick and the quality is very good. Paid less than 20 quid for the whole year for Eurosport Player.

The people running the WEC app have woken up, £8.99 for Le Mans streaming, I'll probably go for that to get an ad free stream without Eurosport commentary if I can't get Radio Le Mans synced properly

I've got Eurosport on the telly, their Le Mans commentary has been dire recently though, and if I've got to watch at home I don't want adverts or studio sections getting in the way

Can't help you there I'm afraid, my telly certainly isn't!
I've had no complaints when I've streamed through the WEC app though

I remember when Radio LM were in a shed somewhere in the village, without sight of the track or a Eurosport feed. Some of the old commentators have retired too, few seem to have a great depth of knowledge nowadays.

After more or less writing it off for this year and hardly paying any attention to when it's going to be run, it takes one short youtube trailer to get me champing at the bit again laugh

Roll on next week!!!

I’ve had another voucher for the later entry tickets which were purchased.

So they have gone through vouchers in the order of purchase.

Wasn’t sure if these later ones would be refunded, so happy days.
