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 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.
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.
