    Default Fi season

    I was just reading up on next years season as we know the BBC are showing less races live next year and SKY are taking over these, SKY have already poached Martin Brundle as well!!!. SKY are going to have a dedicated F1 channel but no news as what this channel is going to cost as knowing SKY it wont be free???

    We have the full sky package so it'll be included with that anyway, Im more annoyed that the BBC sold the rights to Sky so that they (BBC) can spend more money on artsy programs for BBC friggin 4 that only broadcasts from 7:30PM anyway!!

    If next years season is the same as this years with just the one team (RedBull) dominating everything then i'll find something else to watch as its not very entertaining

    I have watched every F1 qualifying and race since the mid 1990s
    Equally, more recently I have managed to watch Practice 3 (and occasionally Practice 1 and 2) on the BBC
    Even ITV with its adverts was acceptable
    However, this is not, as I have no intention of paying SKY any money every
    Therefore, as above, I will have to go and find something else to do, as watching just a few races on BBC makes no sense in trying to follow the entire season

    I had looked at reinstating Virgin Media TV with SKY Sports as and when required, but decided against this a few weeks ago
    I am sorry, but paying nearly £250 for just a few hours alternative TV is just ridiculous

    Looks like the £250 will be spent on some Scottish drink...

    Just be thankful that ITV haven't got it anymore as F1 would have to fit in around a **** tv schedule that includes Xfactor, Britian's Got Talent, Jermey Kyle and their soap operas

    I agree with M8interent,.. pointless showing you half the races. The BBC still insist this is value for money!!!

    I don't have or want Sky, and unless it rains the races are boring, so I'll find something else to do. Maybe a blessing in disguise.

    I cancelled my Sky sports package a few weeks ago because i wasn't watching anything on it, so decided i'd save the £20 per month.
    Now there's something going on i'll watch, i might have to re-subscribe for next season. Typical !


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !
