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

The offer is for Sky Sports Pass for 9 months. All sports channels
included. Live F1 only available through Sky from this year (apart from
British GP which will be live on Channel 4). Highlights only available
through Channel 4.

Many thanks. No longer shared live coverage through Channel 4 - well I guess that explains the price hike!

How did you work out that a monthly pass is £25 per month, I've got it as £33?

 

Thanks

If you buy the vouchers from shops such as curry's, argos & whsmiths the
price is £25. It's always more expensive to buy or renew your passes
through Nowtv themselves.

Hope you find this useful.

How would that work if the first race is in March and the last race is at the end of November.

There is a summer break and Silvestone is on C4

Today I applied a month pass I got with a stick (cost £30) and immediately went to cancel. I got the offer of 3 months for £20.

 

So assuming a shop voucher of £25 + £60 = £85 until 30 July so that is up to German Grand Prix.

 

so if on 2 August I do the same when the Hungarian Grand Prix starts that is another £85 and that takes me beyond the final Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

 

So £170 with minimal fuss.  And the possibility of getting an email offer for early August that could make the first month cheaper.

7x1 months pass would not cover the whole season it runs from March to December even with the Summer break you would need to time it right with first pass activation to get them all for less than a minimum of  8x1 month passes.

Brilliant. I can also get 8% off Agros purchases through my work!

For those with an Entertainment Pass already, things just got a bit cheaper.  This week's qualifying and the race are both live on Sky One.

That's good news. Thanks

Brilliant. That means I can delay the start of my sports Pass. I wonder if
Sky One will show any more races?

I suspect Now TV don't really want to do the 9 months up front as no one ever pays full whack.  There was a Black Friday offer of £186 for 9months with stick, so it is more than that.

 

FWIW I reckon it would be cheaper than £195 if you get a £20/£17/£13 per month email and accept the retention offers when cancelling over the next 8 months.  No guarantees though.
