Re: Sky Sports F1

Hi All

 

I can now confirm that BT Vision customers won’t have access to the Sky Sports F1 channel this season. 

 

If you still want to catch the F1 action, coverage of the Formula 1 races this season will be broadcast by the BBC, with ten of the seasons’ most important races being broadcast live.

The BBC will also broadcast extended highlights of the remaining ten races. For races in the European time zone, customers can catch 90 minute highlights at 5.30pm on race days, and for the Far Eastern time zones, 120 minute highlights will be broadcast at 2pm on race days.

You can tune into the BBC or if the times don’t suit you, set BT Vision to record the action and watch it later.

 

Thx

Kerry

Re: Sky Sports F1

Little point in blaming BT for the lack of F1 coverage it the lack of capacity on FREEVIEW that is the problem

Re: Sky Sports F1

F1 is a rich man's sport, so I suppose you should expect to pay a premium amount for it. I don't want my license fee wasted on it at the expense of other programmes.

I'm a bitter old F1 fan by the way, who hasn't watched a race in years as I see more excitement on the ring road.

If that was always going to be the case, then why all the bullsh*t about being in negotiations with Sky about the F1 channel? To drag it out and sucker more people into a BT Vision plus Sky Sports subscription?

Depends if you are an F1 fan, why do people pay for anything?

Re: Sky Sports F1

At the outset of this debate I nearly jumped for Sky Sports with my BTV. Lack of an early announcment meant that I waited and waited and waited.

 

Reality check. No fault of BBC who have done well to keep at least some live races. No fault BT.

 

Shame on F1 selling out Joe Public.

 

Greedy you know what's.

 

With hindsight I wouldn't want to subscribe to Sky and "reward" F1 for their decision.

 

I didn't jump because they had the best rugby, football or cricket. Certainly now won't bother with F1. Can listen live on BBC Five Live to the races not on TV if I feel a need on a Sunday afternoon for an F1 fix. 

 

Greedy, greedy sport and wonder about the whispers that the competition last year was contrived......
