Viasat Broadcasting has secured the exclusive live broadcasting rights to the FIA Formula One World Championship for Latvia for the 2009, 2010 and 2011 seasons.

Races from the championship will be broadcast live on its national terrestrial channel TV3, and the practice and qualification shown live on the recently launched pay-TV channel Viasat Sport Baltic.
Viasat already held the exclusive rights for neighbouring Estonia and Lithuania until the end of the 2010 season.
