Anyone know how much extra it is to just get the F1 Sky Sports channel on top of normal Sky? Getting sick of watching the crap BBC coverage, and sick of Coulthard and Eddie Jordan! I stuck it out for last year as didnt have much time to watch with a new baby, but this year i dont want to be stuck with BBC (thats if they even have rights to broadcast this year at all???)

You cant get it on its own you have to subscribe to sky sports.
I didnt want the sports channels because I have no interest in it other than for cars so I found the cheapest way was to get SKY HD it comes as standard with that and there are good deals going for it at the moment too.

Although thats no good if you actually want the sports channels

What pack have you got? If you upgraded to HD you'd get it as part of that deal - might be a cheaper option.

I just have all the normal channels, only ones i dont have are sky sports and movies. But wouldnt really want all the sports as i would only be interested in the F1 really. The BBC MOTD does it for me for the football. I prefer just the highlights. I might check up on upgrading to HD and see if i can just get F1 on its own. thanks.

Chatter afoot that "Sky Sports F1" may be changing it's name to "Sky Sports Speed" to include the likes of Indycar and Nascar. (Would be nice if they got WRC too)
Not sure if this will impact the 'free with HD' deal but will see. About time they stopped charging extra for HD anyway IMO.

Thought this was really funny on one of the days testing last week.
Button stops at the end of the pitlane & a Lotus person comes out with his Iphone takes a picture of the rear of the McLaren .
Usually there a bit more subtle at taking spy pictures then this !!.
