  • Sky sports are offering their F1 channel on it's own for £10 a month, all FP's, quali's and races for two years, guaranteed no price increases. Phoned up Virgin to see if they done it, nope, you have to have the whole package, no thanks.

    ... and so say all of us, well, although Canada in my case, as the coverage here is dreadful, especially in the early 2000's ... TSN or SPEED??? ... neither thanks!!

  • The only ball game I watch Lonny is Rugby Union and I can watch as much as I want on BT Sport which comes free with my package.

  • Sky TV here have dropped F1 and Spark a broadband supplier have taken it up but with less than a week to go there is very little information except they have already said they will show Quali and the race on a TV channel they own but no practice and no idea who the commentary is to be by.
    Its a complete shambles!

  • I certainly did Julie, loved it. Cal and Lonny, as a long time customer I can get the sports package for £31 but I ain't paying that much just for the one channel I'd watch.

    True, that would be excessive for the purpose of primarily following F1.   I tell you what, why don't you carry out an audio recording of all the other sport that £31 provides and we will chip in £1.75 for your efforts! 

    We would ask that you also include "voice-overs" for poorly recorded audio, such as the "swish" of a golf club or "clink" of a Snooker cue hitting the cue ball, as it were!!  :DD

    The main problem would be that it's so hard to find a £10 note here on this side of the pond.

    The best we had over here was the old pre-Fox Speedvision. NBC was a close second. This sky feed we get through ESPN sucks. I think the on-air crew must get hit with a fine every time they use the word Haas. They certainly seem to avoid mentioning it.
