    No I won't pay £22 a month to Bad Boy Branson

    Sky F1 Live Stream Online

    Instead of forcing you to get all 3 channels for £22 a month, you would think that if they offered say just the F1 channel for £10 a month they would get more custom. But no, it's nothing but greed greed greed. Sick of it.
    It's not even in HD !! [ I think ]

    with Sky you get the channel for free on HD package, or free with the sports package if you don't have the HD package.

    I myself do not care too much for F1, as I see most motorsports as a waste of fuel (however I do accept that they do make advances in aerodynamics and fuel efficiency that help reduce fuel consumption and said advances are then sold on to car manufacturers)

    With you there boys. I'm still really annoyed that to watch F1 I would need Sky - I'm not going there. If the TV licence I pay doesn't get it then I'm not watching it.

    don't watch F1 although I do enjoy the super cross / motor cross where they have custom bikes jumping between tree stumps etc

    £10.50 pm for HD but the only HD tv we have is the small one upstairs.

    I'd pay £5 pm for SD channel.

    maybe just me on this one but I think they should cancel television licenses ( scrap the bbc ) as I don't watch much on the bbc channels and make us subscribe to either cable or sky ( so virgin media or sky ). Save £12 a month

    Or just put ads on like the other channels, which makes them able to broatcast for free because the ads pay for all the costs!

    Just don't watch/record live TV and then you don't need a tv licence
