  1. This link:

    buy a 24-hour subscription to all Sky Sports channels for £6.99 or a one-week pass for £10.99 to watch this weekend’s grand prix.

    is broken and takes one to

  2. I believe the pricing on the Weekend and Day passes for Sky Sports on NowTV are out of date. The prices were increased this year to £12.99 and £7.99 respectively – though there’s a sale on currently for new customers.

    Really not a fan of the new later start times.

    Only thing thats going to come from it for me is that i’m going to be watching less F1 content over a weekend because I won’t be watching the Saturday F2 race or any of the Sky post race at by 4pm Saturday/Sunday I have other things I need/want to go & do. For as much as I love this sport I ain’t dedicating my entire weekend afternoon to it.

    The whole thing with fiddling with start times almost seems like nothing but pointless change for change’s sake rather than something that actually really needed doing.

    1. And for me it’s the opposite, I’m much more available later on a Sunday to watch the race as we tend to do things as a family in the morning and early afternoon.

      I don’t get to see all races but last year live was about 2 or 3 and this year seen two already so it works for me.

      That said we are two cases, I can’t remember what the thinking was for later times?

    2. Agree these later start times are a real pain thats going to see most of those i know watching less live action.

      be interesting to see how big a ratings drop this terrible decision is going to result in. big me thinks, especially over the 2nd half of the race and analysis.

    3. i’m with the 2 Peter’s on this one it may only be an hour but it’s really screwed up the weekend for me and i am going to watch less of it live now as a result of it.

      it’s especially a pain given how it now bumps the 2nd half of the race up against other sports (sunday football matches tend to have 3pm kick off) which is going to cause a lot of problems in our home.

      I can’t remember what the thinking was for later times?

      @georgetuk it was said on here by the fom insider that it was done at the request of espn and that most of the european and asian broadcasters were against the change, european because of the clashes with other sunday afternoon sporting events and asian regions because it now puts races starting at 11:10pm which is not ideal sinec it now means races run to 3am or more if there are delays.

    I’m sorry for sounding like an old fuddy duddy but I preferred when all races started shortly after 1pm. For two reasons, first you knew what time the race was on and second you can still get a full two hour race even if you have a long race stoppage like Canada 2011 before. The. Sun. Sets
