    I have actively taken a huge dislike to all parties involved with this nonsense now.

    Ecclestone, eternally hated for being such a colossal douchebag. In this instance for pushing the licensing prices higher and higher.
    Sky for blindly accepting the higher prices.
    BBC for not standing their ground and being as spineless as ever.

    Ho-hum, looks like it's back to streaming the F1 for me.

    I suspect somewhere that's not exactly legal, so let's stop that here shall we? Ta.

    Channel 4 races will not have adverts was confirmed. Goodbye Eddie Jordan and DC hopefully 2 horrible people.

    No point streaming boring races though

    What was wrong with DC?! I always thought he was fairly decent as pundits go.
    Be careful what you wish for, because we could end up with some absolute cretins..

    Sky do a rather good stream direct to your TV, or mobile device via Sky Go.

    But then you're paying Sky either £252 per season if you already have Sky, or £xxx (I don't know how much Now TV costs, but it ain't going to be cheap) for the PAYG TV.

    Why anyone pays that amount for (effectively) a single channel is beyond me.

    (or words to that effect). Whilst you might think it's expensive, it's what it costs to view it legally.

    According to the Guardian the C4 deal is a 3 year deal and is for 10 live races a year, and highlights of the remaining 11.

    Whilst it's a shame for the BBC to lose it [though rumours were doing the rounds at the tail end of the season]... at least it's not Channel 5 [or itv tbh] worse still... UKTV... F1, on Dave *shudder*
