Paying the money to have cameras and all necessary personnel at a test is a big step forward. It really shows how the fans hunger for F1 news is being heard by the broadcasters. Hopefully come winter next season we may get tv footage from all the tests. Who knows maybe the F1 website will actually have the live testing running. Fingers crossed.
Truthfully I haven't laughed so much since a friend of mine was trying to explain why here in England we have a temperate climate and he called the Gulf Stream "Warm Flow." I'm not taking the mick but it really did make me chuckle...
If you're thinking of getting Sky, do so before they put the new contract details in place.
Another change for new subscribers is that Sky F1 HD is now only available with a full Sky Sports subscription and HD booster.
Existing subscribers to the £10.25/month HD boost will still get Sky F1 HD without Sky Sports, and Sky said there are no plans to change that in future seasons.
Has anyone been watching the round-up videos anchored by Craig Slater this week (e.g. http://www1.skysports.com/formula1/video/28461/8515137)? I'm not sure whether he's going to be appearing during the actual season but he seems pretty awkward in front of the camera and often the questions he asks are pretty bad. Kimi just laughed in his face and refused to answer one earlier this week, but then that's Kimi.
Following on from Brogan's post a little above and reading a thread from another forum...
It's going to cost at least £41.50 a month to watch every F1 race live on British television through SKY
Even then, it won't even be in HD for that price. For that you'll have to pay another £10.00ish.
Exisiting Sky customers, hurry up if I were you and get yourself the HD only add-on only and you'll get the F1 HD channel and keep it after the changes they're proposing.
2007 Aus GP on Sky F1 in 20 minutes. Looks like it's the whole race judging by the program length and it also claims to be in HD. Anyone know how long they've been replaying past races? Never noticed it before.
