bur how many of the sky chaneels do you watch? You pay money to watch all the adverts on the channels/god channels/renault chanel etc so you are paying to have adverts beamed into your home and relegious nuts not to mention giving murdoch money. I wouldnt mind so much paying for sky IF they diddnt have 59 mins of advert an hour(yes an exageration i know) but if im paying for tv why should i pay twice by having adverts?
as to f1 i suspect its all just bargining i doubt fota would want it going to a pay channel as it would reduce the people watching so sponsors would reduce what they pay teams and so on its lose lose for everyone but murdoch
License fee is worth it just to wake up to Susannah in the mornings ;-D

Massively incompetent journalism, full of errors has been pointed out and the F1 is currently enjoying viewing figures higher than Eastenders, Corry or any other soap you'd want to name. There is fat chance they will ditch it as just about anyone in F1 has confirmed. Would obviously like the BBC to confirm it themselves too but it's just funny. The Times have gone a little bit, well, Daily Mail.
But if you own a computer you can get access to iplayer etc and they get you that way.
BBC iPlayer - Help - Do I need a TV licence to watch programmes on BBC iPlayer?You do not need a television licence to catch-up on television programmes in BBC iPlayer, only when you watch or record at the same time (or virtually the same time) as it is being broadcast or otherwise distributed to the public.
the BBC's coverage of the F1 is infinitely better than it was on ITV, and thats why they recently won a Bafta i think for said coverage. I also always prefer the Football coverage on BBC1 over ITV and Sky. It just always seems more light hearted and watchable for me so for that and to keep it advert free i'm happy to pay a license fee.
Cricket is one of the few sports that lends itself to commercial tv because they can slip an advert in between overs. ITV F1 was a nightmare.
Why should i have to disconnect my TV? I use it for watching DVDs and playing XBOX and if you don't pay your license you get harassed by the licensing gestapo.
Buy a new TV or reciever? Have to fill in a form with your address so they can check that you have a license.
Not at all. You are perfectly able to have a TV will full reception capability as long as you can prove you don't use it to actually receive communications. Good way of doing so especially now is having a TV without a built in digital tuner - without a set top box, you have all the proof you need. No-one is being forced to watch TV or the F1, and you're not paying for the F1 directly. Just because one person doesn't like it doesn't mean they shouldn't have to pay for the entirity of someones programming.
