    Evening all,

    I've been searching for about half an hour now and I was just wondering if the Formula 1 this year is going to be shown on Sky Sports 1 as well as Sky Sports F1 HD?

    If they are only going to show it on their new 'dedicated' channel (money making scheme) then that's a pile of ****...

    You should but I think it's best to phone your digital supplier to confirm

    Advert says F1 is free to all existing sky sports subscribers so you will be fine.

    If you're with Virgin Media you will get the channel in SD, as HD is a Sky only exclusive.

    Doesn't look like Sky F1 will be on Sky Go either which is a bit disappointing

    Not the impression I get from the Sky website. It even says it will be available on Sky Go if you look at the 'Ways to watch' section of the Sky F1 site.

    Hmm it's not on the channel list as of yet. Unless they will be adding it when the season starts. But glad to hear it will be on Sky Go :D

    Is it possible to get the HD package for current sky subscribers without starting a new 12 month contract?

    I seriously don't understand this fascination with F1, I think its a horrible Motorsport, there's too much pitlane ********, rule bickering and money involved, racing (if you could call it that) is as dull as ditch water and to top it off FOM are shitbags with bernie "im a greedy ****" eccleston heading it all.

    why don't you guys watch something like FIA GT1 or GT3 instead?

    Sky haven't offered the HD feed to any other broadcaster yet. VM have confirmed this on their forums

    So does anyone have it yet? Just been flicking through the channel listing and it appears with the programme guide, however when you try to access it just asks you to call customer services to subscribe. Phone call on monday I think...
