      That was what stood out to me, I don't need to subscribe to the Sports Channels.

      See the NewsreadeR link : Posted today

      The dedicated channel will be provided at no extra charge to all Sky TV customers who take both Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2 or the HD pack of channels. It will be found at 408 in Sky's on-screen guide, after a scheduled move of the Sky Sports channels. Sky Sports viewers without the Sky+ HD pack will receive a standard definition version.

      Sky Sports F1 HD viewers can also follow the action wherever they are with all live coverage on Sky Go, through online, mobile or tablet devices, at no extra charge.

      Announcing the new channel, Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, said: "Formula 1 followers are hungry for more and we want to give them the ultimate experience. It's not just every minute of every race but a channel devoted to Formula 1.

      "We can now tell the whole story of the season, from every Grand Prix, from start to finish. Formula 1 will get the full Sky Sports treatment. We have big plans for live shows and a rich line-up of Formula 1 programmes; getting to the drivers, exploring the technology and lapping up the drama.

      Greetings,

      Also hear that the BBC is thinking about bringing back Mr Legard, one sure fire way to decrease the decreasing viewing figures.

      Greetings,


      Well got a call from Sky last night and was offered the HD pack for 2.50 per month for 12 months. This was of course after mentioning I liked watching F1, I of course refused the offer on principle. I'll only be watching F1 on the BBC if it's on and I'm in other than that no longer interested.

      If you happen to have a HD TV, then personally I would suggest that you have shot yourself in the foot. I enjoy watching the HD channels. The sound and picture quality is much better than SD.

      However I can't recall if you only have an SD TV, in which case it is a waste of money.

      Greetings,

      I do have a HD TV, capable of upto 1080i, and to be honest I cannot see the difference between standard and HD. However, I can when comparing standard to a Blu-Ray film... must be the age of the eyes that's the problem.

      I would suggest Specsavers, but then you'd probably end up in the Butchers.
