  1. did you mention what timezone are the hours?

    1. As it says:

      1. I do watch BBC and Sky from UK, but not in UK so the timezone after a specific time matters, more so if you have intl. audience.
        You still dont address the timezone.
        I suppose you talk of GMT because of .co.uk

        1. It clearly states the times are for the UK, so it’s implicit that it’s BST. How much more obvious does it need to be for you?!

          1. they edited and added the “in the uk” part after the comment.

      2. Would be a nice feature to the site if you can actually switch the timezone in a drop down menu

  2. Oh yes, getting closer and closer to decent viewing times for us Brits. No more sleepless nights!! :)

    1. I actually prefer the early morning starts, it’s not like it’s the middle of the night, and it gives you the rest of the day to do other stuff. 1pm is neither here nor there really.

  3. That pub thing is quite interesting. I wonder if there is anything similar here in Lisbon…

    It’s such a shame the BBC lost the contract, I cannot deal with this pathetic coverage. Sky is such a hard cookie to crack when you’re on Virgin Media’s side and only want the F1 channel. Anybody know how I can subscribe to SkyF1 without subscribing to Sky? As always, thanks for ‘Tv Times’ F1Fanatic

    1. @frankjaeger Sky have put the F1 channel on Now TV which you can watch online for £10 per 24 hours:

      Sky to raise F1 channel cost and offer cut-price stream

      Still not very cheap but if you only pay for the rounds that aren’t on the BBC it’s not too bad, particularly if you limit yourself to just the races.
