  1. I was just wondering that what’s with the ‘BBC Red Button.’ What’s with that exception to the rule?

  2. Oh Keith, i’ve just noticed the ad for Now TV at the bottom, i guess this means you support the pay wall for F1.

    1. I’ve written about that several times before – you can read what I think about it here and here.

      1. The first link is just information about the pay tv deal, not your opinion. The second has the hint of you don’t agree with it, nothing to condemn it. They are also 8 and 6 years old. Saying you don’t agree with something is very easy to do, taking money from the thing you disagree with tells the real story.

        1. Both are comment pieces, which is why they are clearly labelled as such, and I haven’t changed my opinion since they were written.

          But I’m enjoying the comedy of someone insisting that my opinion is the exact opposite of what it is, though.

          1. And i’m enjoying seeing some one be completely contradictory. Saying one thing and acting the opposite, keep thinking your’e fighting for the free to air when you spend that hard earned cash from Murdoch’s pocket.

      Whether or not he agrees with the business model is irrelevant, given that he doesn’t have the power to change it.

      K does us a service by linking us to by far the cheapest legal way to watch live F1 in the UK when the live race isn’t on free-to-air, and if he can make commission on that then its a win-win.

      Unless you honestly believe an F1Fanatic boycott would persuade Sky to give up that contract, you are just shooting the messenger.
