With Olav at least being at the circuits I’ll consider going for Pay per View when the BBC isn’t on. But I’ll trial one race before I’d even consider a subscription, since I still don’t like Van Dam, nor am I too fond of Albers and Doornbos and while Jos is one of my favorite drivers, he has a very candid personality, which either means he’ll end up walking away before there’s a contract signed, or he’ll provide James Hunt-like commentary.
I can’t find anything on F1 subscriptions, but they are having a discount, 3 months for 5 euros each, with a tagline stating “formule 1 zie je bij sport1″, so I’m starting to doubt they’ll make F1 only subscriptions.
As far as pay per view goes, if your provider allows it, it should be possible. I myself have Telfort, which is part of KPN and I am able to order soccer matches as described on the following page, so I think I should be able to watch F1.. http://info.sport1.nl/?page=Abonnementen+en+prijzen&cat=Pay+Per+View
