  • I think it needs to be cheaper and part of a bigger deal like Amazon Prime. Thing is its currently on average £5 per race on Sky and you have to buy the awful football crap first to qualify for it.

    • Yeah, having it as its own package, no strings attached would be nice. If it was like Netflix or Amazon as you say and pay £5 a month, it would be better I think. And get more people to watch it.

  • I don’t think the sport will be where it is if it want for the income coming through advertisement

    • F1 is a massive machine though and I feel like it could find other ways to get advertising opportunities. Doesn't need to rely solely on ads during a Sky break for example.

  • One of the reasons for the cost is the number of presenters Sky have, do we really need nearly a dozen of them each race.. and you can bet a pound to a penny Jenson Button & Nico Rosberg don’t come cheap. Once upon a time it was just Murray, then Murray & James, then Murray and Martin. What do they all bring they just keep regurgitating the same stuff plus lots of hype and hysteria and sadly that what you pay for. The actual TV coverage is F1. Have to say though Liberty Media aren’t all that and it pains me to say this but come back Bernie all is forgiven

    • Bernie knew how to rule things with an iron fist and get things done, that's for sure. That's why I like the C4 coverage so much. It's the same few people most of the time, instead of however many people Sky have. I like all the people on Sky but...
