The question asked in the post already assumes that the cost of watching each race is 61 pounds. I am sorry but I don’t agree.
For the record, I stay in India. I pay close to 12,000 INR (assuming a conversion rate of 80, 150 pounds) per year for all channels.
When you say that each race is costing you 61 pounds, you are basically saying that you are going to pay for SKY and watch ONLY the race. You are not going to watch any football, any cricket, anything else. I just don’t buy that. It will be an incredibly small percentage of people who pay for SKY and then not watch any of the other sports. Most of the others are going to watch the other sports. Hence, the actual cost for those majority of the guys will be less far lesser than 61 pounds.
And I ask you all (those claiming 61 pounds) to honestly answer the following question to yourself:
Provided you register for SKY, are you really not going to watch any other sport? Ever?
