Re: F1 fans - Bad news for some

Do what I do, save £450 a year, and not pay the Ecclesone/Murdoch cartel.  RTL broadcast all the races live (with advert breaks), and Radio5Live have live audio commentary for all the races live.
A second LNB pointing at Astra 19.2E  job done....  No monthly cost, and it's trivial to sync up pictures and sound.  (use pause, and then wait until a radio broadcast on the warm up lap as a sync point).
Spend £450 a year on better things...

Indeed, Bernie will have likely killed F1 totally by then...

Re: F1 fans - Bad news for some

So far I have been OK with this years coverage by C4, given it is the same production company which produced the BBC show makes that not a total shock, it is owned by DC too apparently.
But after watching F1 a great deal from the early 80's, I have not been so bothered to watch the race in full for the last couple of years. Now looking for a different motorsport to watch for 2019 onwards.

Don't believe Whisper Productions did F1 for the BBC only some of its current workforce was on BBC production team.

Amateur rally cross, though it does require going somewhere to watch in person... Grin
