    And Sky Sports is Off....

    And Sky 'We are going to rip you off by making you subscribe to all our channels just so you can watch one' [ F1 ] has been switched off. I now have a dish pointing to the Astra 1 satellite so I can get the RTL feed for FREE
    Stick that up your bum Branson and Murdoch.

    Not quite true though is it? They don't make you subscribe to everything just to get the F1 channel.

    Sadly still needed for league Speedway, and their commentator numpties still pollute the Eurosport coverage.

    Only sport I currently care about is ice hockey where I pay for an NHL Gamecenter subscription; cost me about £35 for this year gone because it was a condensed season, with that you get all the regular season games live, playoff games and access to the NHL Vault with games throughout the years. Only issue is where games are broadcast in the UK and are subject to blackouts, but for that I just use unblock.us and it's absolutely fine. Fantastic quality and everything.

    But are you proficient in German? (I'm assuming RTL is German right?)

    I am highly proficient in German, however various German channels (RTL1 2 and 3, Sat1, Das Erste, MDR, NDR, SWR, WDR, ProSieben, and ZDF) also have british language access if you use the right box, due to the british and american forces stationed their, it is quite common now
