The story is a bit confusing depending on the source, but Sky Sports as a whole is being re-branded soon, everybody agrees it will get cheaper whatever.
Where sources differ is whether Sky Sports F1 will stay as it is (merely getting cheaper) or will be re-branded to show other general sports too and get cheaper that way.
One idea is that by having Sky Sports F1, Sky Sports Football, and Sky Sports Cricket etc they can more accurately judge viewing figures for a sport.
Two sources are here, one hardcopy source has said SSF1 will go as a channel (with F1 coverage moving to a general Sky Sports channel) but I can't find that version online;
(One idea floating around is that SSF1 basically only has 3 days of stuff every fortnight in the summer so doesn't justify a whole channel to itself 24/7 throughout the year - though I believe it becomes Sky Sports Darts sometimes)
