    From memory Pick TV was just a rebrand of Sky 3
    The preview was shown on SKY F1 yesterday

    Now, if they repeat the previous days F1 Grand Prix coverage on Pick TV, that would be similar to what BBC did many years ago
    (Sunday Grand Prix on BBC1, then repeated on BBC2 on the Monday afternoon)
    That would get a thumbs up from me

    Anytime...?
    Depends on your service provider

    You've got to be kidding
    The first 20 minutes were very good, but after that it was dreadful

    What was really ironic were the F1 adverts during the adverts!
    Why would anyone want to sign up with Sky F1 channel, when they were already watching it...

    Just a quick 1 guys, sorry to hi jack thread. I was very angry when i found out that sky was charging for the f1 channel, but it seems i have had a touch. I have a sky hd box, but do not have the hd subcription nor sky sports but so far i am able to watch the sky f1 channel on the 408.

    Just hope it stays that way, cheap and cheerful fix. fingers crossed

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    I was pretty much the same, was furious when I found out it was going to Sky as I don't have the sports channels but I DO have HD and so I get it free and not only is it the races but all sorts of other stuff too including full coverage of GP2 and GP3, can see me getting into those too, happy camper here, I sat and watched about four hours last night (interview with Emerson Fittipaldi, preview show and a few other bits), I can see me spending a lot of time on 408 (I have a feeling Amy's going to get fed up of it pretty quickly )

    Sky have certainly pumped some money into it and do seem to be getting great access to stuff, so I've got my fingers crossed for a great season. As long as they keep it free and keep the races advert free (as they've said they will) I'm happy.

    As for getting it if you don't have an HD or sports subscription, I'm only guessing here, but I'm betting it's open to everyone at the moment to try and get sales (hence the adverts selling it on the channel itself) and once the season starts at the weekend, it will go encrypted, wouldn't be the first time Sky have done that.

    I watched a bit of the F1 channel over the weekend, and there's no way that the beeb could come close to the amount of content Sky have, even at the moment while waiting to start there't tonnes of F1 stuff to watch, such as Winter testing for each track and car unveils etc..
    Also, I've never known the beeb to show the friday practice sessions

    phoned Sky yesterday to ask how much to get it for my father,£17.50 came the reply form the non uk resident person on the other end,i told them 'nah' it was to dear just for 1 channel,so told just just to cancel the complete sky package as he works 10-12hrs per day & weekends are his only time off.


    hadnt even got my mobile back in my pocket....................witheld number ringing.......................'hi its ******* from sky' 'i believe you were inquiring about the F1 channel' 'yes' i said 'but at £17.50 its just tooo expensive for 1 channel'

    'ok mr hughes we will let you have the channel free' before he could say anything else i said 'for a year?'.........................bit of a pause................'yes thats fine mr hughes.........................i will be turned on between 10-24hrs'.......................5 hrs later it was on


    might aswell call their bluff
