Before I start, I’d like to point out that the BBC does not provide free F1 coverage; the licence fee is currently £150 per year. Granted, this is a lot less than a Sky subscription, but bear in mind that 100% of this licence fee goes to the BBC- and the BBC only runs a dozen or so channels (and only a few that anyone actually watches). But anyway, this isn’t a gripe about the licence fee- I was merely pointing out that F1 coverage is far from free.
@sumedhvidwans. Just like matt90, I also do not have Sky and if I were to buy it, I would do so PURELY for F1. There is nothing else on Sky that would interest me, so I would literally be paying £60 per race. And whichever way you look at it, that’s a rip-off.
As I’ve said before on other topics, I do not object to pay-per-view in itself- it’s simply the extortionate amounts that Sky demands that I refuse to pay. If Sky opened up their online Sky Player for, say £10 per race weekend, I would happily pay that. But £60 is ridiculous, by anyone’s standards.
