It’s unlikely as no membership you can purchase in bulk anymore.
At best you can hope for monthly discounts for 3-6 months at a time.
Which can be found within your offers in your account.
Or the main offers section of the website.
Alternatively you can speak with staff after 8am to ask what offers are kicking around. Just make sure you click “chat online”.
Tks gavs, yes that’s what I did last season 2021 on a 9 mth contract think it was but am ever hopeful for the full season as we had previously. Not really interested in other sports so reluctant to spend for a full sky sport package.
There is no such thing as a TV membership contract, unless your billing is via BT.
All it would be is monthly discounts and anytime within the discount period you are welcome to cancel and not get charged.
I've been given the same offer, but is there going to be a specific F1 offer nearer to the season?
Last March just before the season started they offered £20 a month for 9 months, specifically targeting F1 fans and covering the whole season. It seemed to be a replacement for the 9 month season passes they had offered in previous years.
This 6 month offer looks unrelated. It starts a month before the F1 season begins and then only covers just over half the season, reverting to full price for the last 4 months.
If I were to take it (it expires on the 20th of February) and then a "proper" F1 offer came along next month, would I be able to cancel it and use the better offer?
I've decided to take up the 6 month offer as it expires this weekend and there's no guarantee of anything better coming along. I assume that means if there is a 9 month F1 offer next month it won't be sent to me as I'll already be subscribed.
If anyone does get an F1 offer covering the whole season, can they report it here please? I'll try to persuade Now TV to switch me to it.
This is what annoys me about having to use Now TV for F1, it often ends up being an expensive gamble.
@Ant42 There is always a chance that when your 6 months offer period is drawing to a close you will be offered another deal if you go through the cancellation process in your account. Otherwise, as you say, contact customer services via chat, I have usually found them to be quite receptive. See you in 6 months for an update! 🙂
The 6 mth offer is for all Sky sports incl F1 but no I’ve not accepted my offer yet but probably will in the next day or two as it expires on 20/2.
Why not contact Now on their chat and see what they can do for you.
I will wait for the 9 month offer again. They are bound to do something to cover F1.
I mean we all get shafted either way a most of use have no interest in the other channels but the 6 months deal is a bit of a joke.
And that's without considering you have to pay an extra £5 for a legacy HD resolution.
Looking back through my emails last year I left the 6 month deal and waited for the 9 month deal in March.
@Kenjara We all have to weigh up our options and decide what we think is best for us. As the only other provider is Sky directly then that does narrow things down a bit. As for getting "shafted" I think that's a bit strong in the context of a minority sport, as it is for any area of pay TV, it's not compulsory, you know?
I don't think its strong at all. Sky know they have you over a barrel and make the most of it.
Are you really telling me you think the standard price for a 720 stream is fair and good value for money?
I have never thought its good value for money even with the discounts but I pay because I like F1.
And this is for a sport that where big money moves around so I don't think you can class it as a minority.
I personally cant wait for the sky contract to end so we can get it direct for a better price and more content like the rest of the world.
@Kenjara you're looking at the price through the single lense of F1 but the cost is for all sport, 11 channels and on demand content.
I watch lots of sport of varying types so happy to pay what I am (less than £20 a month due to retention offers). I would baulk at paying the current €10 a month for F1 TV Pro - one channel offering the best part of 2 races a month.
If you're happy to pay that, get a VPN and subscribe direct but then you'll have to factor in £5-£10 a month for the VPN service.
Of course I am just considering it the price of F1 because that's all I want.
Sky / Now could offer a solo F1 package if they wanted to, but they don't.
And from that I only really want the live races and race repeats and not the washing machine of repeated SkyF1 features on the channel. If it has other motorsports than just Indy car lumped in then it could possibly increase the value but it doesn't.
Or even if they just offered a decent resolution as standard.
I have 0 interest in any of the other sky sports channels.
