F1 highlights on Channel4 before NOWTV?

I recently subscribed to NOWTV for F1. However why am I paying NOW when if I miss live qualifying or the live race Channel 4 shows the highlights before NOWTV?

 

Thats not great for a paid for service.

@ChrisGG That’s due to the terms of the contract signed between Sky and Channel 4.

 

Sky(Now) show the events live, then C4 show the highlights and finally Sky(Now) show the repeats.

Thanks I thought it was something to do with that. Although you would think that only covered terrestrial rights as opposed to paid for tv.

 

Regardless it’s not great for NOWTV F1 customers.

C4 also has the highlights on demand via All4 for a week after the race.

It is ridiculous.

 

You watch edited clips of the highlights on Sky Sports F1 You Tube channel and Ted’s Notebook on You Tube all before NOWTV.

 

Doesn’t make sense.

Well, what you are effectively paying NOW for is live coverage. If you don't want, or need that then there are other alternatives.
