I wouldn't pay any monies to watch cars go round and pound with no passing etc.Between the teams/BBC/and SKY they are putting the final nails into the f1 coffin.just watch motogp for some real action.

How can anyone disagree with my last post, I watch MotoGp - FACT. You can't disagree with a truth and a question combined that makes no sense without backing up with a point as to why my statement required a disagree with. Numpty...

Well i get Sky Sports via Virgin already so no increase in the bill....but....
I don't get the HD channels as standard with Sky, have to pay another 10 quid a month or something like that. I would imagine that you wont get the F1 HD channel without forking out extra which will be a pain as it looked so good in HD last year on the Beeb and that came as part of the licence fee.
Fuzz, as soon as you ask why someone disagrees you are guaranteed another disagree lol. That's some Crash posters for you lol

What I want is to be able to purchase the F1 channel alone. I have no interest in any of the other sports on Sky so having to buy the full channel package to get the F1 Channel is extortion.

Juddonix, That would be my ideal as well but stuck with getting Sky package via Virgin. The way I look at it is I just won't go to Silverstone for the weekend this year and that'll pay for the subscription. Don't get me wrong I don't want to pay for the subscription, I tried to fool myself that I wouldn't watch it live but who am I kidding!!

SKum bloke: " Formula 1 is going to get the full Sky Sports treatment". Yeah, adverts.....
SKum must be having difficulties getting people to sign up if they are selling to Virgin. But who would sign up when half the races will be live on the beeb & the other half you can watch on the internet...

Sky have already guaranteed that there will be no adverts during the races. And Sky's coverage of other sports is almost always better than anything the terrestrial channels offer - you get what you pay for, sadly. Being able to get the Sky F1 channel without becoming a full Sky subscriber is a boost, and means you can enjoy the sport without giving too much money to Rupert Murdoch. No choice but to give your money to the BBC though, no matter what you think of their self-admitted biases.

Well this deal completes the betrayal/selling out of the license paying F1 fans in the UK by the BBC & $ly
There is no way as a vermin media customer I would pay for the full $ly sports package just to get F1
Even if I would degrade myself by adding a $ly package to my subscription
$ly have done so much damage to British TV & sport in particular that this entire deal cooked up by the BBC should have been investigated as anticompetitive it having basically excluded any other interested channels from having a chance
