F1 2020 on NowTV. What do we want?

What do we want to see from NowTV F1 in 2020 ?

 

I'd want a stand alone HD app with live and catch up at a maximum of £10 per month.

Considering Sports passes still do not have any catch up content, I wouldn't hold my breath!

 

Although Sky Go/TV from Sky on PS4 has catch up sports it certainly wouldn't be difficult to bring that aspect over to Now TV. 

 

FYI that I do not work for NOW, just a NOW customer trying to help

I would like F1 Sky Sports Channel upgraded to 50FPS on NowTV like the Main channel is now with boost I think that is definitely possible. Catchup for Qualifying would be very nice specially for races held in early morning but not sure how likely that is to happen.

To be honest, the F1 deal they've done before at £119 for the full season makes it £13.22 a month... for 24-hour access to all the Sky Sports Channels - It's great value. And whilst the quality it's stunning I still get a very respectable picture, even stretched on a 79" TV!

 

 

If anyone from Sky/NowTV is reading, I think that the above is a justifiable price for those of us that just want to F1 - Committing £34/month to watch 1 channel for 2-3 hours every fortnight won't do it for me

£119? When was that, cost me £195 last year.

Hopefully they do a season pass for 2020, just not with a stupid price hike as before.

Ah yes, you're right! Last year it was £195 -

 

I just googled and 2018 it was £150, here's hoping no more price rises as I think I'll find another way to watch it if it's over £200

Does anyone remember roughly when the pass comes out, I seem to remember beginning of march??

Last year it went on sale on Tuesday 5th March, with the first race on Sunday 17th March.

£119!? We have always paid £195 I think. Its bound to go up again too. Still good value for 9 months of viewing I guess.

You have less than a hour to get three months passes with sticks for £50.  Just £150 that way.

F1 lost 8.6 millions UK TV viewers last season due to this Sky exclusive deal. F1 are very displeased at this to say the least.

 

I'm sure Sky are under-pressue to address this for 2020. Sky has been lumping F1 in with other sports, both for Sky Sports subscriptions and for the NOW TV F1 season pass. I just don't think the F1 viewer demographic is an avid sports fan. I would like to see Sky/NOW TV split F1 out as a separate subscription and substantially reduce the cost to the viewer.

 

So I would like see Sky Sport F1 sold as a non-contracted single sport package and at a reasonable affordable price - say £100 for the season.

 

Certainly Sky/NOW TV need to think outside the box, take a risk and try something different!

I so agree.  I just want F1 for the season, really don’t care about the rest of sport.  As an extra it’s £10 per month, so please let us have it on it’s own for the same amount.

As long as those who don't care about F1 get the same treatment.  I only watch football and without all the football subscribers, the cost per F1  sbscriber would be more. So you should pay £10/month extra.

Full race re-run on Sky ONE Sun 15 Mar 8am 

 

How good is that?  You only have to have an entertainment pass which was £1 for two months a couple of days ago.

They are cutting it fine to announce it and get a decent uptake with just over a week to go.

I've saved £30 of Tesco Clubcard vouchers which I can convert to £90 credit for NowTV. Should make for a good saving when the pass goes on sale.

Hopefully they bring back the cheaper pass that was available last year. I can't bring myself to pay £34 for 2 races every month.

Just give me just the F1 channel please.

 

Had the 9 month pass for the last two years (£150,£190 - 26% increase!!!!), but can probably count on the fingers of one hand I watched any of the other channels. If it hits £200 this year then I'll have to find some other way of watching. Alternatively if it was say £100 for just the F1 channel, I'd quite happily pay that for the 9 months.

You do just get the F1 channel.  You pay £190 for it for 9 months. And it is a devoted channel that  is on 24/7. You could watch it all day and night.  Even better a few of the races are on Sky One.  

 

I don't watch F1 so I want a reduction in what I pay.  I don't watch Golf either. Nor darts, nor rugby league. nor rugby union. Nor animals running around a track. Nor American sports. Nor fighting. Nor netball. Nor ping pong.

You don't just get the F1 channel - You essentially get 11 Sky Sports channels for 9 months for £190.

 

I totally agree with the previous statements, F1 is really the only sport I care about - £190 for the season was really the limit for me. If it's over £200 this time around I'll seriously consider finding other ways to watch it.

 

The cost of watching the sport at £150 (£16.66/month for 9 months) was fairly good value - That crept up to £21.11/month last year. Considering I watch 5-6 hours a month (quali and race) it starts to look poor value when I use Netflix for about 20+ hours a month and it costs £10/month with a much bigger selection.
