F1 pass from £150 to £195? +30% YoY?

I don't know you but I found a 30% increase unfair. I bought the £150 offer last year which was already too expensive and probably going to pirate stream this year. I think customer should boicot when increases are so big

NowTV sports channels are not available on Youview, only the Sky Cinema channels.

That is due to change sometime around the summer and before the start of the 2019/20 football season where the full NowTV service will be coming to BT Youview boxes ONLY.

Varies. If you start on 1 April it ends 1 may (30 days) and if you start on 1 may it ends on 1 June (31 days). if you start today (30 mar) it ends on 30 apr (31 days).  And if you started on feb 1 it will end on 1 mar  (28 days)

Does SkyF1 show FULL LIVE replays of the races or just highlights after the race. I can't watch most races live so if I could only see highlights then I'll catch up on Channel 4.

The channel does full race replays but obviously the timings change with each race so you'd need to be sure you would still be around to watch the replays. NowTV don't do sports on demand so you would still be tied to the broadcast time of the replays on the F1 channel.

Easier to set up recording on Channel 4...and obviously cheaper

7 x £25 = £175 ignoring any special offers now TV will present you with for cancelling after each pass expires.

Here is the calendar for the F1 season which may help you guys plan your passes. There are sizeable gaps between some race weekends (eg. there is a full month between Hungary and Belgium).

Yes the season is 9 months long. There is also some large gaps between
races. If, like me, you only want to watch f1, all 21 races can be viewed
with just 7 monthly passes at £25.
Races 1,2 & 3 1 pass. Races 4,5 & 6. Then 7,8 & 9. Then 10,11 & 12. Summer
break. 13,14,15 & 16 another pass. 17,18 & 19 another. Then the last one to
cover races 20 & 21. You could even cover the last 2 races with 2 £10 week
passes to save another £5 if you really wanted too.
As long as you cancel the renewal before the end of the month you'll be
fine. You might even get offered deals to stay which may work out even
cheaper.
Hope you find this useful.

As pointed out by Gerry in a similar thread, the British grand prix is free on Channel 4.

So it is possible to cover the season with 5x month passes and 4 weekly passes for £165.

 

Thanks to Gerry.

Am I being a bit dim, but does the £195 offer only cover Sky Sports F1 channel, I.e. only one channel or all 11. It's just only F1 is mentioned in all the blurb whereas I would have thought it would be a selling point to say you get all 11 for football etc? Just seems unclear to me (a newbie) - nowhere does it mention '9 months of Sky Sports' or similar only references are to F1. If it is only F1 channel I cannot see it being anywhere near worth it... as per everyone's previous comments and considering quite a few are free on Channel 4 (assuming this is still case this year). May be tempted if football & cricket etc covered too but not will to complete until I am sure!! Thanks.
