Even after Matti Kyllönen, our Murray Walker (Hell, he even Out-murrayed Murray himself at times) retired, the commentary has been absolutely top notch, the current lineup being Oskari Saari (He is a wonderful mix of knowledge and commentating ability), Mika Salo (a recent addition, to replace JJ Lehto who has been absent for about a year due to personal reasons*), Erkki Mustakari (Best known as a sidekick of Kyllönen, he is THE F1 expert in Finland) and the pit reporter Timo Pulkkinen.
They're entertaining, informative and the fact that Salo sounds like he is CONSTANTLY being sarcastic is downright Funny.
I have seen some MTV3 videos on YT without knowing Finnish, but I gotta admit: Kyllönen seems to be really good at his job.

For this I gotta say something.
DIGI, a cabletv/internet provider (who has a Hungarian owner named Zoltán Tasnádi IIRC, but the company itself is Romanian) has been launching several sports channels named Digisport 1 and 2. In Turkey and Romania, F1 are already being aired on those channels. Now, Hungary has only 2 DS channels so far, Romania has 3.
I have a feeling that F1 will be moved onto Digisport maybe next year, and we might also end up having F1 ONLY on pay-TV.
Formula-1 has always been on FTA channels in Hungary up to now. Even back in the eighties' socialist years when we had only two channels, it was on!
