For those in the UK, Sky are apparently changing their packages from July
18th, and it appears that the "Sky Sports F1" channel will be available
more cheaply than currently.
Disclaimer: I'm not a Sky customer (other than getting a free Sky Sports
Mobile package through my Vodafone phone contract), so I'm not really sure
how their byzantine charging structure currently works.
Thanks for the heads-up.
There's more info for anyone that's interested here:
Now you can just have Sky Sports F1 for £18 a month.
Having weighed it up, I'm going to pass. It's £18 pound a month
for what amounts to about 4 hours total viewing per race event,
with qualifying and the race. Sky Sports F1 actually produce a
LOT more content than that per race event, but I'm lucky if I
can grab the TV long enough to watch the qualies and the race
(it's the ONLY thing on TV that I bother to watch, I literally
don't watch anything else on TV.)
Given that I normally have to fast-forward through Sky's very
thorough coverage, I'm going to stick to Channel 4's coverage,
which I've found to be excellent, and I think I actually prefer
their somewhat more condensed format.
Except for Eddie Jordan. He's just a twat.
