Spanish regional Catalan public broadcaster Televisió de Catalunya (TVC)'s TV3 will premiere the Formula 1 Championship in HDTV beginning with the Australian Grand Prix.

TV3 will base its offering on maximum quality in its transmissions in 16:9 format. The company claims to be the first to offer Dolby Digital 5.1 and will in 2011 offer Formula 1 in HDTV through the TV3 HD channel. Users will also be able to follow races on the broadcaster’s internet channel.
