Sky Sports have annonced that they will be the home of F1 next season, personally I'm disappointed, what does the Forum think?

They only have it for half the races.

Its Total Rubbish. I can belive after all the things the teams said they are going to do this.

I really hope it back fires on them

The BEEB has only got half the races Dad.
The rest will be highlights only, they`ll also show qualifying. How long before the BEEB loses out altogether?
I think it is bad news when the majority of the coverage goes to pay TV....there are other obvious reasons why I don`t like this deal with Sky.

Makes me glad I no longer pay my TV license fee.

Remember test match cricket on the BBC anybody? What happened to that and corresponding public interest in the five-day game? Oh yes, I remember now...

I am struggling to see how Sky will benefit from it as at least 50% of the current BBC viewers will not be watching it on Sky, me being one of them. F1 was on the up recently but this will surely kill it off in years to come

There's no point complaining about it to the BBC, just record a voice mail message on your mobile - it will get through to the Murdochs eventually...

Disappointing, why should we have to pay twice to watch something, we pay tv license to watch it, to hell with paying sky as well.

Looks like my motorsport watching will be well down next year...oh well we still have BTCC, for the time being anyway

hi
i do hope this is not true,because if it is there is no motorsport to be watched in my home any more,apart from touring cars on itv4.

The chances of Mr Crusty and Son or Mr beardie getting my signature on a full of clauses contracts are a big fat ZERO.

Well.....
Absolutely disgusting... I could not believe my ears this morning - I thought the BEEB had about a six year deal and there was a stink over the large fee, sounds like they sold some off to Murdoch... horrible. I only hope some one picks this up and runs a campaign. The Government sells off the terestial bandwidth for billions forcing us to fit dishes [no digital terrestial here... too many mountains], no compensation.. then we find we have to cough-up to a media billionaire to be able to see anything, every sport is bought-out by a dominant monopoly who is then free to extract whatever fee's they want from a captive market..... why bother. I scrapped my sky subscription years ago after seeing the fees go on a relentless spiral, I did not like paying Murdoch ~£300/year, when it went to >£550/year I just drew the line...... stinks.

Quote from Bernie:

Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone told BBC Sport: "It's super for F1. It will mean a lot more coverage for the sport.
"There'll be highlights as well as live coverage on two different networks now, so we get the best of both worlds."


I think he means HE gets the best of both worlds.
