As someone who is in the same spot as you, I can tell you that it's not a simple thing to get your hands on the (very good) Sky coverage.
You have a few options, but streaming for me is very inconvenient, as race times can be problematic here in Eastern Standard Time. I am also addicted to F1 in HD, so another limitation of streaming TV video.
I ended up registering with a private tracker and download all of the practices, qually and races in HD. It cost me a few $ to get around any ratio issues, but it has been totally worth it. US/Canadian TV Coverage just plain sucks. As you mentioned, no Practice sessions, and the announcers have absolutely no clue about F1, it's painful to watch, particularly on Speed.
If you send me an email at droog57 at gmail dot com I can send you an invite that will get you past the front page on the site that I'm on, after that it's up to you to maintain your ratio or donate to get around it. But at least you have 50 some days to decide.
