My kids are huge F1 fans and reluctant as I am to get Sky I might end up having to do so.


It's hard to imagine taking out an unwanted Sky subscription just so the kids could watch 10 live F1 races a year. It would be cheaper to take them to watch over a pub lunch.

Re: Sky Sports F1

F1 race coverage is supplied by a world feed from Formula One Management, every person across the globe sees the same thing no matter who's paid for the rights!!!

 

Sky can do lots before and after but you can forget anything different during the race itself!

Lets face reality........you get what you pay for! the quality of commentary, camera angles and overall presentation of football provided by Sky Sports  is second to none, try watching a game covered by ITV for comparison, I'm looking forward to the Sky Sports F1 because I'm sure it will be excellent, particularly if broadcast in 3D ;¬)


Matter of personal taste I guess - I've got Sky via BT Vision - but given the choice, if the match is on BBC too I'd watch that over Sky any day. Don't like their silly computer graphics to explain things & as for the big 'MNF' banner for Monday night Football, I'm quite able to remember what day of the week it is thanks 😉

 

Can't see the point of so-called 3D either - as far as I can tell TV is in 3D already - I can distinguish which players are in the foreground, middle distance, far away etc ....

Re: Sky Sports F1

Formula One Managment only just started doing HD recently and 16:9 long after it had become commonplace, as I said above any Sky viewers who are sitting smugly thinking they will get a different viewing experience to the rest of us are sadly mistaken!!

They will get a different viewing experience from us though, won't they? They'll actually be able to see the race! 😉

Re: Sky Sports F1

If F1 is not included in the BT Vision add-on for Sky Sports 1&2 -  then you can expect a rush of members like me running down the contract and jumping ship.  My decision to take out BT Vision for SKY Sports was a close call anyway - so I'd be happy to go elsewhere at the drop of a hat......

Re: Sky Sports F1

That's the idea. Same way Virgin's not allowed HD. They want peow to switch , and they're prepared to lose money in the short term to get new subscribers, and crush competition.
