Ten lines up a slew of shows it hopes will keep the viewers hooked

After the World Cup what? That is the question that the naysayers have asked of Ten Sports on the programming front.

The "upstart" sports broadcaster has put car racing, boxing, beach volleyball... as some of the fare on its menu.

And it all starts Saturday, 6 July. Formula One, the FIVB Beach Volleyball International Circuit and a series on boxing legend Muhammad Ali is what is being showcased. On Sunday, Ten presents Indian car racing ace Narain Karthikeyan live & exclusive at the Telefonica World Series.

On 6 & 7 July, Ten will be airing the British Grand Prix from the Silverstone circuit, which comprises a fraction of the FIA Formula One World Championships. Ten will be telecasting the qualifying races as well as the championships all year long. The telecast is 5:30 pm onwards on both Saturday and Sunday.

Karthikeyan, the first Indian to have graduated to the Telefonica World Series, a step away from the most coveted Formula One Championship, struts his stuff on Sunday, 7 July. Karthikeyan pits his talent against the world's most promising drivers and Formula One veterans like Ricardo Zonta. The telecast is at 4:30 pm and 19:30 pm. 

By way of this telecast, Ten Sports has chosen to present Narain Karthikeyan and give him the recognition that live coverage bestows," says Chris McDonald, chief executive, Ten Sports.

For old school boxing enthusiasts, a ringside view of the exploits of the "Greatest" is what is being offered. Among Ali's fights that will be showcased on Super Bouts: Legends (Ali) are: his winning the National Golden Glove middleweight championship and the Olympic light heavyweight gold medal tomorrow at 10:30 pm or Sunday at 3:30 pm.

In addition to telecasting Ali's fights, Ten will also broadcast an exclusive documentary on the life and career of the boxing legend through a mosaic of anecdotes, reminiscences and reflections.

Rounding it all off is the FIVB Beach Volleyball International Circuit. Telecast is tomorrow at 16:30 hrs.
